A Method to Prepare Silver Nanoparticles for Inkjet Inks Capable of Sintering at Low Temperature
Abstract:We have been studying a method to prepare silver nanoparticles. At NIP26 we reported a new method to prepare silver nanoparticles of a diameter less than 10 nm with no organic solvent and complicated separation, in which amine compounds have the effect on the growth process of silver nanoparticles. In this study, the effect of dispersing agents such as sodium gluconate is investigated. We have tried to prepare the silver nanoparticles by using dispersing agents of low molecular weight compound instead of polymer. Similarly, nanoparticles of a diameter less than 10 nm can be obtained. This procedure of producing silver nanoparticles leads to a fall in sintering temperature. It is expected that the manufacturing of electronic circuits can be achieved at relatively low temperature with inks prepared in this study.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
