Vaporized metals serve as inks

Scientists at the Center for Nanoscale Systems have found a way to coat objects with an extremely thin layer of semiconductor that shines in vivid colors from bright pink to deep blue. This coating could replace paint in certain circumstances since it does not add any significant amount of weight and does not alter the flexibility of the substrate.

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.
