As flexible and printed electronics find new commercial markets, manufacturers are seeking improved performance from conductive inks and other materials. As a result, suppliers are developing new materials for their customers.
Sarah Wilson, product promotion specialist II at Brewer Science, Inc., noted that the requirement of conductive inks can be divided into two categories based on their use. First, there are transparent conductive inks for applications such as replacement of indium tin oxide, photonic and optical devices, display, solar cells, and touchscreens. Second, there are conductive inks for interconnects in flexible printed electronic devices such as transistors and oscillators.
“We produce semiconducting CNTs inks for multiple printing tools such as ink jet, screen, and Aerosol Jet, giving competitive edges to our sensor products,” Wilson said. “Our requirements mostly encompass a response to a given stimulus. Brewer Science has enabled
