dc.description.abstract 3D printing custom devices onboard the international space station allows astronauts to create solutions to simple needs faster than NASA can send devices from Earth. To print devices with circuits, a specialized printing method in microgravity requires the usage of capacitive nano inks. Barium titanate nano inks, capped with hydroxyethyl cellulose, function well as printable capacitive inks. However, the stability of this barium titanate ink is currently inconsistent, making it useless for application after a long storage and launch cycle. Multiple samples of barium titanate nano ink will be synthesized to optimize the stability of this ink across a testing regime of pH levels and surfactant types. Stability will be measured using aging, UV-vis spectroscopy, and a rheometer.
