We report the piezoelectric behavior of three-dimensionally layer-by-layer printed (bottom-up stereolithography, 21–46-µm layer thickness) polymer without filler or poling, using unmodified ultraviolet-curable resins (acrylate ester for Resin 1, and methacrylated monomers/oligomers for Resin 2) that are not known to be piezoelectric. The smaller is the layer thickness, the greater is the shear stress in printing, the more is the molecular alignment, the higher is the out-of-plane electric… 

Enhancing the inherent piezoelectric behavior of a three-dimensionally printed acrylate polymer by electrical poling

A three-dimensionally (3D) printed acrylate polymer without filler, printed by stereolithography, has previously been shown to be inherently piezoelectric in the out-of-plane and in-plane directions

Decreasing the shear stress-induced in-plane molecular alignment by unprecedented stereolithographic delay in three-dimensional printing

AbstractThe shear stress-induced in-plane molecular alignment in 3D printed polymer is decreased with an increased stereolithographic delay. The molecular alignment represented by the

Unprecedented sensing of interlayer defects in three-dimensionally printed polymer by capacitance measurement

Interlayer defects in a three-dimensionally (3D) printed structure are expected from the residual stress and commonly observed warpage, but their detection has been challenging and elusive. They are
