Low-cost copper conducting nano-inks
New, oxidation-resistant copper nano-inks with a low sintering temperature (lower than 150oC), which enable the printing of low-cost conductive patterns on heat sensitive plastic substrates.
Clear-jet has developed a technology for creating pre-patterned transparent conductive films using specially-formulated inkjet printed silver nanoparticles. The technology is based on the so-called 'coffee stain' effect and promises to simplify the value chain by combining the deposition and patterning steps in one-go.
