Synthesis and Formulation
Functional nano materials for printed electronics are synthesized by gas-phase or wet chemical chemistry.
Composition, size, and morphology of particles and/or layers can be widely modified with regard to processing (e.g. melting point) or electrical (e.g.bad gap) behavior.
Synthesis of doped semiconductor nanoparticles, ternary, or quaternary metal oxide systems is a promising research arena. Ink properties like viscosity, surface energy, and vapor pressures can be tailored with respect to subsequent processing. Thus, functional features can be produced by various techniques including ink jet printing, spray pyrolysis, and screen printing.
