Plastic Embedded Gold Nanoparticles as 3D Printing Dichroic Nanocomposite Material

The incorporation of dichroic nanoparticles in 3D printable plastic results in a dichroic nanocomposite material that can be easily 3D printed. Gold nanoparticles that shows dichroic properties have been embedded in polyvinylalcohol, a standard 3D printable plastic. The nanocomposite shows dichroic properties and standard printability properties.
