Materials with Embedded Microstructural Logic

Robert Panas | 19-ERD-018

Executive Summary

The goal of this project is to design, build, and test robust microscale mechanical logic circuits that can be fabricated into the microstructure of a lattice material using additive manufacturing techniques. These logic circuits will not require an electrical power source, so they will be able to operate in harsh environments with minimal electromagnetic signatures.
