Additive manufacturing of ceramic materials using the vat polymerization technique is a developing technological field. Materials like alumina and zirconia have proven successful for this technology because there is less concern with refractive index of these materials. A recent formulation for titania, has been developed by Lithoz for use with their Lithography-based Ceramic Manufacturing (LCM) technology. This LCM technique provides superior micrometric dimensional accuracy. Continuing efforts must be made to understand the structure-property-performance relationship of LCM-fabricated materials and electroceramics.
- Understand the capabilities of the Lithography-based Ceramic Manufacturing (LCM) printing technique
- Realize the potential applications of additively manufactured electroceramic materials with medium to high permittivities
- Understand how the build direction of additively manufactured electroceramics affects the macroscopic properties of the printed material, as compared to conventionally processed electroceramics
