We have developed a conductive ink applicable to ink-jet printing to fabricate conductive lines on flexible substrates. Nano-sized silver particles having ∼ 20nm diameter was used for the direct metal printing. Silver conductive ink was printed on polymer substrates such as polyimide (PI), polyethylene naphthalate (PEN), and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) for the application to flexible electronics. The printing conditions of pulse frequency, pulse amplitude, xy-stage moving velocity and substrate temperature were optimized to achieve smooth conductive track with high resolution. After heat-treatment at temperature of about 100 ∼ 300°C for 30 min, the printed silver patterns exhibit metallike appearance and conductivity. The influence of the printing conditions on the microstructure and conductivity of the conductive track was investigated.

  • 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.
