Water-Based Carbon-Coated Copper Nanoparticle Fluid—Formation of Conductive Layers at Low Temperature by Spin Coating and Inkjet Deposition
A conductive inkjettable fluid was formulated based on carbon-coated copper nanoparticles. The copper particles were produced by vapor-phase reduction of copper chloride and coated in situ with carbon. The average particle size was 44‐88 nm depending on the chosen production parameters. The optimized fluid was a water/ethylene glycol monobutyl ether/n-propanol mixture with 25 wt% nanoparticles, stabilized by a polymeric dispersing agent. A conductivity of 6.4 S/m was obtained with a single deposited layer without sintering or high-temperature annealing. The materials are interesting for several applications such as antistatic coatings, resistors, and sensors.

The Journal of Imaging Science and Technology (JIST) is dedicated to the advancement of imaging science knowledge, the practical applications of such knowledge, and how imaging science relates to other fields of study. The pages of this journal are open to reports of new theoretical or experimental results, and to comprehensive reviews. Only original manuscripts that have not been previously published, nor currently submitted for publication elsewhere, should be submitted.
IS&T's JIST-first publication option allows authors wishing to present their work at conferences, but have a journal citation for their paper, to submit a paper to JIST that follows the same rigorous peer-review vetting and publication process as traditional JIST articles, but with the benefit of a condensed time-to-publication time frame and guaranteed conference presentation slot.
Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
