3D printing in chemistry and healthcare

Professor Leroy "Lee" Cronin, the Regius Chair of Chemistry at the University of Glasgow, gave a talk entitled "Can we make computers with chemicals?" and described how his team used 3D printed parts outside the physical and hardware parts of their chemical computers.

3D printing in quantum systems

Quantum Base, a company developing Quantum systems, spun out of Lancaster University in 2013, co-exhibited at New Scientist Live. They demonstrated many of their labs and the systems used in them with the help of 3D printed models. Quantum Base also use 3D printed parts in experiments.

Kai Bongs, the Director of the UK National Quantum Technology Hub in Sensors and Metrology, gave a talk entitled "How quantum sensors can improve our lives". The talk described development a magnetoencephalography (MEG) system that can measure brain activity in a much less intrusive manner than other neuroimaging techniques. 

In this system the helmet is 3D printed.These helmets, combined with sensors, measure brain activity by evaluating the freethra-level magnetic fields generated by human brain currents.
