Electrospray for Digital Microfabrication
Abstract:Electrically driven formation of droplets of conducting fluids combined with electrostatic control of droplet trajectory forms the basis of a method that can be used to print liquids with micron resolution. This talk describes basic aspects of this approach and its use in printing a variety of fluids, including suspensions of single walled carbon nanotubes, solutions of conducting polymers, and range of dielectric materials. Simple devices, such as organic transistors and light emitting diodes, demonstrate some of the patterning capabilities. Advantages and disadvantages compared to conventional ink jet printing will be described.

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.
