Ahmed Busnaina - Printing of Nano and Microscale Electronics and Sensors

Session 25: Emerging Capabilities

Printing of Nano and Microscale Electronics and Sensors
Thursday, June 22, 2017 
1:40 PM - 2:00 PM

A new printing technology for printing of nano and microlectronics and Sensors on Flexible or Rigid Substrates has been developed. The new technology is capable of printing feature a 1000 times smaller (about 20 nanometers) than inkjet. This printing technology can print inorganic or organic conductors, semiconductors (including III-V and II-VI), and dielectrics. The technology uses minimum energy and water compared to conventional electronics nanofabrication. The technology is capable of printing 1000 times faster than inkjet, 1000 times smaller patterns and costs 10-100 times less than conventional fabrication. This presentation will show the applications of this technology in printing electronics and sensor applications. The presentation will also show the second-generation fully automated robotic printer that will include built in inspection and annealing modules in addition to a registration and alignment module. Nano OPS strategic partner Mialra, Inc. designs and builds the automated modules, robots and the alignment module.
