How Inkjet Technology And a Single Transparent Ink Created a Rainbow of Textured Colors

In China, a new printing process using structural inks was recently invented and implemented with a commercially available inkjet printer. With the help of a transparent polymer ink, dome-shaped microstructures were printed. During the process, the height and diameter of the microdome control the wavelength of the reflected light as well as the color created. According to a team of researchers, the new technology will be used for applications such as smart windows or anti-counterfeiting.

A team of engineers of the Boston Tufts University is turning to inkjet printing technology to improve the established use of metamaterials for mobile, communications and medical devices. As they are more amenable to the resolution of common fabrication methods, these changes might even create new options for the development of metamaterials for visible light.
