A microscopic ‘pen’ that is able to write structures small enough to trap and harness light using a commercially available printing technique could be used for sensing, biotechnology, lasers, and studying the interaction between light and matter.
An exhibition of early colour printing in Germany shines a light on the ways in which technology jump-started a revolution in image making. The British Museum show is curated by Dr Elizabeth Savage, whose research makes a radical contribution to an understanding of colour in woodcuts.
A low-cost, high-speed method for printing electronics using graphene and other conductive materials could open up a wide range of commercial applications.
A group of researchers from the UK have used inkjet printing technology to successfully print cells taken from the eye for the very first time.
It may be a modern term, but information technology is as old as civilisation itself, and its impact on past societies was often just as profound. An ambitious project is tracing how such innovations created a complex graphic environment in Russia, during an earlier information age.
The latest research into the emergence of printmaking technology in early modern Europe is challenging accepted thinking about the development of colour printing. A seminar at CRASSH will reappraise these assumptions in the light of new archival evidence.
