  • Electroforming of metallic and nano composite micro structures

    Researcher: Xueyong Wei

    PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

    When the electroforming as an old technology meets the cutting edge micro and nano technology, new

    fabricate high precision components at lost cost and high throughput. In this project, the researchers developed micro/nano

    electroforming process based on UV-Lithography and Nanosphere Lithography. Nickel based micro components

    successfully fabricated and characterized. Nanoparticles like alumina and carbon nanotubes were used to enhance mechanical

    properties of electroformed nickel structures.

    When the electroforming as an old technology meets the cutting edge micro and nano technology, new opportunities are born to

    fabricate high precision components at lost cost and high throughput. In this project, the researchers developed micro/nano

    Lithography and Nanosphere Lithography. Nickel based micro components and nano patterns were

    successfully fabricated and characterized. Nanoparticles like alumina and carbon nanotubes were used to enhance mechanical
