New value-added, intelligent products with novel functionalities, e.g., sensors and simple displays have recently received much attention in the research community. For these types of products to come into everyday use, devices with reasonable electrical performance and negligible production cost are required. One way to reduce the manufacturing cost is to fabricate the electronics on inexpensive paper substrates by using roll-to-roll techniques (“Paper Electronics”), as an alternative to conventional electronics manufactured with batch processes on glass or polymer film substrates. The current work discusses printing of electronics on paper and demonstrates, as a proof-of-concept, a hygroscopic insulator field effect transistor device (HIFET) printed on paper with a custom-built roll-to-roll hybrid printer.

  • 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.
