The transformation from an economy heavily reliant on fossil fuels to carbon-free energy generation has sparked a demand for low-cost, highly optimized functional materials. The physical and chemical properties of several ceramics and metals make these materials useful for many applications at the nexus of energy, including agronomy, ecology, transportation, manufacturing, and industrial processes. Our team has been researching and developing new ways of structuring ceramics and metals. 3D printing technology provides unprecedented flexibility in the design of materials and components. Composition and particle size are key variables the influence the printing process. Optimum sintering schedules are identified and the mechanical properties and performance of the printed materials are characterized.
