Come join ISE’s faculty and fellow students as they welcome one of their one, Jingyan Dong, as he discusses printing processes for viable micro/nanomanufacturing.
As always refreshments will be served from 10:30 – 10:50 am in room 428 Daniels Hall.
Capabilities to produce micro/nanostructures from a broad set of functional materials are critical for the
manufacturing of many emerging products. Our research group is exploring and developing novel manufacturing processes and tools that investigate mechanical, electronic, and fluidic phenomena and processes for the manufacturing at the micro- and nanoscale. This talk will focus on the progress on integrating innovative printing processes with various functional materials to implement viable micro/nanomanufacturing for high-resolution additive manufacturing and flexible and stretchable electronics. Two printing modes, filament plotting and drop-on-demand printing, are developed for the fabrication of micro-scale 3D microstructures. We will discuss the process models to study and predict the EHD printing process, including droplet formation from the nozzle and droplet settlement on the substrate, which is very important to understand the printing mechanism and predict the printing behavior. Moreover, this talk will discuss the EHD printing of traditionally hard-to-print materials for the fabrication of emerging flexible and stretchable electronics.
Jingyan Dong received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering in 2006 from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Before that, he received a B.S. in Automatic control from the University of Science and Technology of China in 1998, a M.S. from the Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2001. Dr. Dong joined the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at the North Carolina State University as an assistant professor in 2008, and was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in 2014. His research interests span multiple topics in the micro and nanoscale manufacturing, including high-resolution printing, manufacturing of flexible and stretchable electronics, tip-based nanomachining, multi-scale manufacturing tools, and modeling and optimization of the manufacturing processes and systems.
