Researchers improve printing ink based electrical circuits




Researchers at Georgia Tech have presented a new way to print. Inexpensive electronic circuits For about $ 300, an electronic circuit on paper within sixty seconds.

A number of researchers at Georgia Tech have developed a new way to advanced, print using a desktop printer, ink based on electronic circuits so writes Gizmag. They use equipment worth $ 300 that can be used. Randomly shaped circuits on paper with a resin coated PET film or glossy photo paper with silver nano-particle ink printed

The technique is intended for both manufacturers and do-it-yourselfers. The ink costs 150 euros per bottle of 100 ml, the printer costs about 60 euros and empty cartridges can already be purchased for 7.50 euros. With a bottle of ink can be a surface of 10 m 2 printed. This ink is according to the researchers as well as free particles, silver ink, which requires complex machines. The technique is moreover not to use with canvas fabric and magnet sheets.

The printed circuitry can be attached to other designs and electrical components with the aid of double-sided tape guides or with silver-filled epoxy adhesive. Details about the research in this paper describes. The research was conducted in collaboration with Microsoft Research and the University of Tokyo and can be especially useful for testing. Rapid prototyping of fully self-built circuits

The printing of circuits is not new, but the technique of the team makes this cheaper and faster. Earlier, the Max Planck Institute has already developed a method to print. Circuits with graphene This method is similar to that of Georgia Tech using empty inkjet cartridges, but in this study is a way which these cartridges do not have to be to place the ink. Heated The team is now in a position to be able to print. Ink-based circuits in 60 seconds
