The Photonic Curing Process for Printed Electronics with Applications to Printed RFID Tags and Thin Film Transistors
Abstract:Photonic curing has been shown to be effective in heating inks and functional films to very high temperatures, in excess of 1000C, on low-temperature substrates such as polymers and paper. This paper reviews the basic principles of the technology and expounds on implications to applications and materials, including cost and performance. Specifically, application with thin film transistors and with radio frequency identification tags are presented. Some of this work has been previously presented by the authors.

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.
