Self-limiting laser crystallization and direct writing of 2D materials
Zabihollah Ahmadi, Baha Yakupoglu, Nurul Azam, Salah Elafandi, and Masoud Mahjouri-Saman
Direct growth and patterning of atomically thin two-dimensional (2D) materials on various substrates are essential steps towards enabling their potential for use in the next generation of electronic and optoelectronic devices. The conventional gas-phase growth techniques, however, are not compatible with direct pattern

Towards atomic and close-to-atomic scale manufacturing
Human beings have witnessed unprecedented developments since the 1760s using precision tools and manufacturing methods that have led to ever-increasing precision, from millimeter to micrometer, to single nanometer, and to atomic levels. The modes of manufacturing have also advanced from craft-based manufacturing in the

Micromanufacturing of composite materials: a review
Mahadi Hasan, Jingwei Zhao, and Zhengyi Jian
Composite materials exhibit advantages from the combination of multiple properties, which cannot be achieved by a monolithic material. At present, the use of composite materials in miniaturized scale is receiving much attention in the fields of medicine, electronics, aerospace, and microtooling. A common method for pro
