Small nozzles, which are used to deposit small volume of liquids, are more prone to clogging and breaking and more difficult to manufacture. This project aims to develop a novel technique to produce jets that are 100 times smaller than the nozzle in size (no need for small nozzles) and printing frequency that is one order of magnitude higher than the natural electrojetting pulsation technique (fast printing).
