Researchers prove semiconductors could be soldered and 3D printed, while still delivering proper electronic performance

A research effort led by Dmitri Talapin, a chemistry professor at the University of Chicago, has demonstrated how semiconductors could be soldered – and even 3D printed — and still deliver the proper electronic performance.

The classical method of manufacturing processes in the silicon industry does not require soldering; instead, engineers create a large silicon crystal which they can cut, carve, and etch to a desired shape.
