  Y-Prize Startup VisiPlate is Opening Eyes and Attracting Funding
  VisiPlate, a nanotechnology-based medical device for glaucoma patients, got its start as the winner of the 2017 Y-Prize. Team VisiPlate selected nanoscopically thin plates and applied them to a device that shunts away the excess ocular fluid that builds up in glaucoma. Here Brandon Kao, senior in Materials Science and Engineering and VisiPlate team member, describes how they came together, and where they're going next.

  Adding a Twist Makes 3D-Printed Structures Tougher
  Jordan Raney, assistant professor of Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics, has helped devise a way for 3D printers to make structures with similar toughness-increasing patterns embedded within. By infusing liquid polymer "ink" with short carbon fibers and rotating the printer's nozzle as it prints, the fibers twist into helical microstructures akin to those found in the mantis shrimp's club.
