Abstract

The UV-assisted direct-write fabrication of microcoils is shown using a UV-photocurable carbon nanotube nanocomposite ink. The method employs the robotically controlled microextrusion of a filament combined with a UV exposure that follows the extrusion point. Upon curing, the increased rigidity of the extruded filament enables the creation of complex multi-directional shapes.
