French researchers successful in 3D printing super high-resolution optical glass

Researchers from the ICMCB-CNRS laboratory and the University of Bordeaux have developed a method of 3D printing phosphate glass via FDM technology. By first pulling the glass filament using a fiber drawing tower, the researchers were able to extrude complex geometries while maintaining the photoluminescence properties of the material. The team believes its direct approach to fabricating […]
