The Amassian Research Group seeks to enable a new paradigm in additive manufacturing through research and development in ink-based organic and hybrid electronic materials. Research is performed in a state-of-the-art Ambient Manufacturing of Electronics (AME) laboratory, part of the Carbon Electronics Cluster, which enables both scientific research, such as into the mechanisms of self-assembly and crystallization of functional materials, and engineering developments, including the fabrication of electronic, optoelectronic and photovoltaic devices. AME also carries out engineering efforts to integrate the ambient printing of electronic materials with classical additive manufacturing platforms to enable integrated manufacturing approaches.
