Ink-Jet Printed Nanoparticle Microelectromechanical Systems

  title={Ink-Jet Printed Nanoparticle Microelectromechanical Systems},
  author={Sawyer B. Fuller and Eric Wilhelm and Joseph M. Jacobson},
We report a method to additively build threedimensional (3-D) microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) and electrical circuitry by ink-jet printing nanoparticle metal colloids. Fabricating metallic structures from nanoparticles avoids the extreme processing conditions required for standard lithographic fabrication and molten-metal-droplet deposition. Nanoparticles typically measure 1 to 100 nm in diameter and can be sintered at plastic-compatible temperatures as low as 300 C to form material… CONTINUE READING
