|Low Temperature Sintering Nanoparticle Inks for Printed Electronic Devices|
|Keywords: Low Temperature, Printed electronics, Nanoparticle Inks|
|The organic and printed electronics bares a great potential to become an industry of $300B in next 20 years. While more and more companies and research institutes around the world are joining into this industry for a large variety of exciting applications, however, there still lack of extraordinarily successful stores in product commercialization. We have been keeping challenging ourselves to bring in more materials that would be better suitable for needs in the development and commercialization of high performance printed electronics on low cost substrates, such as paper and plastics. We have developed a variety of nanoparticle based inks with different electric functionalities. Those truly nano-sized materials (mostly less than 5 nm) have low sintering temperatures, and thus can be processed on most widely used plastic substrates. In this presentation, we also demonstrated using printing technologies to fabricate various patterns as well as OTFTs using conjugated polymers and nanomaterials. Sintering behaviors from metal nanoparticles to conductive metallic films have been further investigated. In addition, we have tested the stretching of printed silver nanoparticle films on PET, and found the films electrically conductive up to 120% elongation.|
