An investigation into the depth and time dependent behavior of UV cured 3D ink jet printed objects (2017)
Journal Article
Chen, X., Ashcroft, I., Tuck, C., He, Y., Hague, R. J., & Wildman, R. D. (2017). An investigation into the depth and time dependent behavior of UV cured 3D ink jet printed objects. Journal of Materials Research, 32(8), (1407-1420). doi:10.1557/jmr.2017.4. ISSN 0884-2914

An ultra-violet (UV) curable ink jet 3D printed material was characterized by an inverse finite element modeling (IFEM) technique employing a nonlinear viscoelastic–viscoplastic (NVEVP) material constitutive model; this methodology was compared direc... Read More

Optically excited nanoscale ultrasonic transducers (2015)
Journal Article
Smith, R. J., Cota, F. P., Marques, L., Chen, X., Arca, A., Webb, K., …Clark, M. (2015). Optically excited nanoscale ultrasonic transducers. Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, 137(1), doi:10.1121/1.4904487. ISSN 0001-4966

In order to work at higher ultrasonic frequencies, for instance, to increase the resolution, it is necessary to fabricate smaller and higher frequency transducers. This paper presents an ultrasonic transducer capable of being made at a very small siz... Read More
