Location of event:

Beirut Arab University, Debbieh Campus, A3 building, meeting room


Talk Summary:

The seminar will focus on developing new types of UV curable resins that can be used with DLP printers to create high-quality, precise 3D printed objects. These resins are designed to have specific properties, such as high resolution, low shrinkage, and fast curing times. His research has shown that UV printed resins can be used to produce complex, intricate geometries with fine details and excellent surface finish. These resins have potential applications in various fields, including aerospace, biomedical engineering, biomaterials, jewelry, dental and architecture.

Speaker Bio:

Dr. Walid Meouche is currently an assistant professor of organic chemistry in the Department of Chemistry in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at Balamand University. He published several articles in internationally recognized journals on imprinted polymers, a type of materials science that involves creating synthetic polymer structures with specific molecular recognition properties. His work has focused on developing new methods for synthesizing imprinted polymers, as well as exploring their potential applications in areas such as drug delivery, environmental monitoring, and analytical chemistry. Dr. Meouche also conducted research on UV printed resins for digital light processing (DLP) applications. DLP is a 3D printing technology that uses a projector to cure a liquid resin into a solid object.
