Presentation Title:

Conductive Inks and Pastes for Flexible and Printed Electronics Applications

Time: TBD

Presentation Abstract:

For the last 10 years, the silver nanoparticle conductive inks, which have been developed for their low temperature sintering features, showed excellent conductivity and solution processibility [1]. Various ink and paste formulations have been developed for a wide range of printing techniques, including ink jet, gravure print, and screen print [2]. As emerging technology, integration of materials, processes and device applications is a key for the flexible and printed electronics technology to transfer into a commercial success. At Guangdong Nanhai ETEB Technology Co. Ltd.,several applications for consumer electronics in the areas of smart packages, internet-of-things (IOT), healthcare, wearable devices as well we cosmetics have been commercially developed using R2R printing technology in fabricating devices on flexible substrates, including papers and plastics. Great market potential has been demonstrated that the flexible and low-cost smart devices will enable extensive applications in human life and future business.
