Surface Micro-patterning with Self-assembled Monolayers Selectively Deposited on Copper Substrates by Ink-jet Printing


Ink jet printing of self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) on copper provides a potential route to the digital manufacture of patterned tracks and micro-fabricated devices. However, forming a SAM layer using conventional solution methods is challenging due to the native oxide layer on copper, and this issue is magnified for ink-jet printing, where the oxide layer… (More)
