Project Overview

This PhD project has been initiated to develop a laser-based precision additive manufacturing route for the CIM-UP platform at the University of Cambridge. Tentatively, the process will be based on a laser assisted chemical vapour deposition system. The desired capability of the system is to deposit a range of materials at locations controlled by a laser with minimal contamination. These deposited materials may connect other multiple materials, add functionality or build 3D geometry at the micrometer precision level. It is envisioned that such a capability is vital for deposition on fragile materials such as graphene and carbon nanotubes for the manufacture of next generation devices.
