Lars Grabow

Perhaps one of the most desirable qualities of gold – especially to those wearing it as jewelry – is its ability to hold onto its bright, shining glow. Gold can resist rusting and tarnishing when exposed to air or water because it’s inert, meaning it’s one of the least reactive of all metals.

The latest developments in three-dimensional printing technology are opening doors to advances in research fields like medicine, computing and electronics. But while these advances are promising, the feedstocks used in 3-d printing are still mostly limited to simple polymers, which are great for constructing trinkets and demo devices but not as useful when looking to create complex circuit boards or flexible, bendable wiring.

Have you ever wondered how the tiny components and devices inside of your cell phone are made?

The devices inside of your phone and computer – like the integrated circuits, microprocessors and memory chips – are made in a process called lithography (which, in Greek, translates quite literally to “writing on stones”).
