Surface Morphology and Conductivity Study of Inkjet Printed Traces from Ag Nanoparticle Inks
Abstract:Non-contact printing of conductive traces for electronic device fabrication is attractive due to its low cost, high resolution and high throughput characteristics. Inkjet printing of Ag nanoparticle inks followed by thermal or photonic sintering has the greatest potential for commercialization. In this process, the chemical and physical properties of the ink formulation and post print processing have significant impacts on the performance of the printed traces. In this paper, the effects of sintering methods and process conditions on the surface morphology and conductivity of the fabricated Ag traces are discussed.

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.
