Research Topic

Printed Electronics, Ink Formulation, and Liquid Pattern Formation

We developed various printing technologies to fabricate micro-electro-mechanical devices and disposable circuitry on flexible substrates. Several synthetic methods are developed to functionalize nanoparticle surfaces for better dispersion stability. Quantitative description of particle deposition and/or binding forces on solid surfaces are also examined either experimentally or theoretically to help ink formulation. To achieve high printing quality, fundamental ink spreading phenomena and the stability of liquid patterns on plastic substrates are also studied theoretically, experimentally, or computationally with computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
