Blue Current is a well-funded early-stage battery materials company based on technology out of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and UNC Chapel Hill. We are developing a new class of inherently safe lithium-ion batteries...
The Carolina CreatorSpaces Network, conceived as a hub and spokes model, connects facilities where ideas come to life in tangible form across various disciplines on campus. A new CreatorSpaces Hub in Applied Physical Sciences will be built in 2015 on the first floor of Murray Hall with adjacent Department laboratory space, to connect other already existing facilities as well as expanding activities in the network.
Carbon3D brings an innovative approach to polymer-based 3D printing that promises to advance the industry beyond basic prototyping to 3D manufacturing. The new Continuous Liquid Interface Production technology, CLIP, harnesses light and oxygen to continuously grow objects from a pool of resin instead of printing them layer-by-layer. The technology was introduced to the scientific community as the cover story in the journal Science. Carbon3D's CLIP technology raises the state-of-the-art in 3D printing...
