A silver molecular ink (MINK) platform formulated for screen, inkjet, flexo, and gravure is presented. The MINK technology was developed by researchers at the National Research Council of Canada in collaboration with e2ip technologies in order to drive advancements in printed electronics. MINK is capable of producing thin, narrow, screen-printed traces with exceptional electrical (<5 mΩ/sq/mil) and mechanical properties including stretch and elongation. Thin traces are remarkably conformal, enabling truly advanced designs in printed electronics including e.g. fully printed metal−insulator−metal band-pass filters as well as fully printed high-mobility thin film transistors (TFTs) based on semiconducting single-walled carbon nanotubes. Fully printed TFTs on flexible plastic substrates with mobility values of > 1 cm2 V−1 s−1 and current on/off ratios >104 were obtained.
Emerging applications such as In-Mold Electronics, Transparent Conductive Films, and Advanced Sensors can be produced with improved electrical and mechanical performance compared with traditional flake silver or nano silver materials. Further, the processability tolerances can be further stretched with regards to forming and molding.
