Inkjet printing of functional polymers and nanoparticles
Abstract:Inkjet printing is known to be a low cost and flexible technique for the controlled deposition of functional materials for applications in polymer light-emitting devices (PLEDs), solar cell devices, organic field effect transistors (oFETs) and tailor-made high-tech coatings. Moreover, it can be considered as a library preparation technique of functional polymers or nanoparticles allowing a systematic variation of parameters (e.g. thickness or chemical composition) for combinatorial studies. The presented research deals with two different and significant topics: investigations of ink formulations (using isolating, conducting and semi-conduction polymers as well as semi-conducting nanoparticles) and the systematic variation of the utilized surfaces of the respective substrates as well as the optimization of the printing conditions to improve the quality of inkjet printed films. Moreover, the application of inkjet etching will also be addressed.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
