Newswise: Johns Hopkins APL Takes 3D Printing of Electronic Parts to the Next Level

Johns Hopkins APL Takes 3D Printing of Electronic Parts to the Next Level

Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory

Researchers at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (APL), in Laurel, Maryland, have demonstrated a novel and groundbreaking way to additively print gallium nitride (GaN) — a material that can be used to produce semiconductor power devices as well as radio-frequency components and light-emitting diodes – using a combination of liquid and gas. Their work was detailed in "A pathway to compound semiconductor additive manufacturing," published recently in the journal MRS Communications.

Johns Hopkins APL’s Breakthrough Flexible, Cuttable Lithium-Ion Battery Now Won’t Catch Fire

Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory

A team of researchers from the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) in Laurel, Maryland, has realized another landmark achievement with their breakthrough lithium-ion battery technology. The flexible Li-ion battery that can operate under extreme conditions — including cutting, submersion and simulated ballistic impact — can now also add incombustible to its resume.
