In this paper, a new method for quantifying the deposition rate in Aerosol Jet 3-D printing, namely the fabrication of inkewells, has been proposed. This is SMIEL’s first collaborative work with the group of Dr. Daniel Hines in the LPS. This is also the first paper of Dr. Yuan Gu (postdoc in SMIEL) in the group and the first paper of Prof. Das in the area of 3-D printing. Well done Yuan !!!!
