Digital Fabrication of – Oxide Electronics
Here we report on the fabrication of basic electronic building blocks (e.g. a diode, resistor, capacitor) based on ink-jet printed amorphous oxides and metal contacts as active and passive device layers. Printed components are based on originally synthesized amorphous semiconductive oxides and metallic inks. After printing, low temperature sintering method developed by NovaCentrix® (PulseForge®) was performed in order to form the device active and passive layers. This was accomplished by using proprietary high-intensity flash lamps at very short pulse durations allowing us to use a low-cost Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic film as the substrate material.
Obtained results may open novel routes for the development of a next generation of Large Area Printed Electronics based on printed amorphous oxides.
