Additive printing technologies have faced noteworthy development driven by their ability to revolutionize academic and industrial manufacturing and research sectors. They also have many practical uses in the areas of micro and nanofabrication. Micro- and nano-printings have found tremendous applications in the area of material synthesis/patterning, electronics, medicine and biotechnology. Here, we assess the important additive micro and nano printing techniques, including materials jet printings as well as recently emerging techniques such as aerosol jet printing (APJ), and plasma jet printing (PJP) for in-pile sensors for nuclear applications. Printable ink materials, process control, advantages and challenges of printings have also been covered. There is a huge possibility for this advanced printing in some emerging non-conventional areas for sensing extreme environments.
