Lithography-based ceramic manufacture (LCM) of auxetic structures: present capabilities and challenges

Smart Materials and Structures, Apr 2016

Every day experience shows that expanding a rubber band leads to a decrease in the bands diameter (until it ruptures and snaps one´s finger). An auxetic structure behaves the other way round, i.e. the diameter of a rubber band would increase when stretched and decrease when compressed. With the help of the LCM technology highly precise and complex auxetic geometries made of ceramic could be achieved.

The addition of a defined micro-structure on the surface of a part allows to achieve advanced functionalities. For example, in the biomedical field the surface of a mini-reactor can be specially designed to study the mobility of cells. The accuracy of the LCM technology enables the actual manufacturing of defined micro-topologies, instead of being the result of the machining processes or special chemical treatment.
