Particle-free Silver Ink Prints Small-, High-performance Electronics


January 12, 2012

reactive silver ink University of Illinois materials scientists have developed a new reactive silver ink for printing high-performance electronics on ubiquitous, low-cost materials such as flexible plastic, paper or fabric substrates. The reactive ink has several advantages over particle-based inks: Low processing temperature, high conductivity and the ability to print very small features. Full Story
