Polymeric Materials for Printed Electronics and Their Interactions with Paper Substrates
Abstract:The primary goal of printing electronics is to create structures and devices that are functionally similar to conventional electronics, but at greater speed, lower cost and less production complexity. The applications that will be affected by lower cost of electronics include RFID tags, solar cells, displays, chemical sensors, etc. In this work, effects of paper properties and their effect on sheet resistivity of gravure printed PEDOT:PSS layers were evaluated. Among paper properties, it was observed that absorptivity and ink penetration had negative effect on conductivity. The higher the ink penetration into the substrate surface the lower the conductivity. Moreover, surface energy of the substrates needs to be in balance with surface tension of the conductive inks.

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.
