The Influence of Post-Treatment Strategies in Inkjet Printing on the Morphology of Layers and the Functional Performances of Electronic Devices
Abstract:A UV curable ink is deposited on substrates by inkjet technology with constant jetting parameters and identical digital images. As the ink is composed of non evaporating liquids the patterns stay wet until being exposed to UV light. This enables the precise control of the transition from the liquid to the solid phase. By adjusting the time scales and energy levels of the post-treatment processes diverse pattern morphologies with different three-dimensional profiles are generated. We investigate the influence of the employed post-treatment strategies on 3D-functionalities. In addition, different treated UV ink layers are used in simple electronic devices and characterized by their performance. The results reveal exemplarily the significance of the process steps after the deposition of each single drop.

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.
