BPNX1015: Ultra-Light Antennas via Charge Programmed Deposition Additive Manufacturing (New Project)


Multi-material printing employing charge-programmed material is utilized for phase array antenna fabrication, showcasing an ultra-lightweight RF phase array. Significant weight reduction is achieved through selective dielectric material printing. Our approach enables complex electronic device fabrication in one step, utilizing a mosaic of surface charge regions to deposit functional materials with precision. We demonstrate the inherently complex manufacturing process via homogeneous diffusion and fluid dynamics control.
