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 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.
