Foldable Printed Circuit Boards on Paper Substrates

  title={Foldable Printed Circuit Boards on Paper Substrates},
  author={Adam C. Siegel and Scott T. Phillips and Michael D. Dickey and Nanshu Lu and Zhigang Suo and George M Whitesides},
This paper describes several low-cost methods for fabricating flexible electronic circuits on paper. The circuits comprise i) metallic wires (e.g., tin or zinc) that are deposited on the substrate by evaporation, sputtering, or airbrushing, and ii) discrete surface-mountable electronic components that are fastened with conductive adhesive directly to the wires. These electronic circuits—like conventional printed circuit boards—can be produced with electronic components that connect on both… CONTINUE READING
