The use of ink jet printing to produce metallized patterns on temperature-sensitive substrates is attractive for applications such as printed electronics and MEMS. Silver (in either suspension or solution) is a widely investigated material for such inks due to high conductivity when compared to alternatives such as conductive polymers. The use of silver nanoparticle suspensions enables processing temperatures as low as 150 °C, with conductivity approaching that of the bulk material. Work presented within demonstrates the use of a silver organometallic salt dissolved in xylene that can be printed readily and undergoes photolysis to elemental silver when exposed to a 514 nm laser. Conductive tracks produced by this method are characterized to demonstrate their use for metallization at near room temperature with a feature resolution below 10 μm.

  • 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.
