An aqueous inkjettable conductive fluid based on carbon coated copper nanoparticles has been developed. The fluid can be handled in atmospheric conditions and processed at low temperature (105 °C) with no thermal annealing. A layer conductivity exceeding 600 S/cm has been demonstrated. The particles were produced in a continuous flow reactor from copper chloride powder by hydrogen reduction at high temperature (950 °C). Results indicate that conductivity is enhanced through the formation of carbon nanotubes by addition of ethene and water to the reaction flow. The type and concentration of dispersing additive and co-solvents had a significant impact on dispersion stability and electrical conductivity of the deposited layer. Applicability of the fluid for direct patterning of coatings for e.g. antistatic purposes was demonstrated by inkjet printing of a conductor electrode pattern.

More about this publication?
  • 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.
