This paper disclosed recent novel development in printing circuit on flexible substrate by combining self-assembled polyelectrolytes, inkjet printing of catalyst, and electroless plating of metal. Experimental results indicated that building up zone model would enhance substrate surface uniformity. The results also showed that salt concentration would dramatic change the polyelectrolyte layer property before ink-jet printing of catalyst. Salt ions would balance charges in polyelectrolyte layers and smear the surface. It made the finer diameter of porous hole and significantly increased the adhesion between the ink-jet catalyst and the substrate. Surface uniformity was controlled within ±5%. A high quality circuit fabricated by said ink-jet printing method is presented.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
