The low conductivity and thin layers of the inlget-printed metal conductors have always been a big concern in paper-based printed electronics for high frequency applications. To provide the fundamental knowledge, the high frequency characteristics of inlget-printed coplanar waveguides on paper substrate were studied experimentally in terms of characteristic impedance and conductor losses using the time domain reflectometry technique. The influences of different printing settings and of geometric parameters on the waveguide's properties were investigated. Considering the measurement accuracy in high frequency characterization, one sample with an impedance of 51.2 Ω was achieved. The electrical stability of the samples was also studied and explained. In addition, one waveguide sample was printed in a way that the pattern area with the highest current density is thickened. This variable ink-layer thiclozess approach has successfiilly been proven as a promising solution to reduce the conductor losses and yet consuming less ink.

  • 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.
