Seminar Laser-induced forward transfer of viscoplastic fluids
Martin Klein Schaarsberg


Laser-Induced Forward Transfer (LIFT) is a method of additive manufacturing on small scales with a wide variety of applications in the fabrication of flexible electronics, optics, and living tissues. In LIFT, a single laser pulse is focused onto a thin film of the target material, which ultimately leads to the ejection of a droplet. We aim to develop better understanding of the effect of the rheological properties of non-Newtonian fluids and pastes on the LIFT ejection mechanism. We investigate the violent fragmentation and jetting of viscoplastic fluids with high-speed imaging.
