4D printing is the functional form of 3D printing, capable of creating dynamic and designed objects that respond to external stimuli.
Our research activity develops along three main axes:
i) The synthesis of new photocurable formulations that are nanocomposite and multifunctional.
ii) The development of advanced strategies to structure (organize) the matter at the micro- and the nano-scale during the 3D fabrication process.
iii) The development of new technologies and devices for stereolithographic (DLP, SLA) and two-photon 4D printing
The applications of our research are in the fields of optics (photonics and plasmonics), sensing and actuators, soft robotics and electronics, energy harvesting, and health.
