Doug Freitag - Liquid Silicon Ink for Printable Active Components

Session 21: Novel Conductor and Semiconductor Materials

Liquid Silicon Ink for Printable Active Components
Thursday, June 22, 2017 
11:00 AM - 11:20 AM

A newly developed “liquid silicon” precursor will be discussed. Cyclohexasilane (CHS; Si6H12) has been used to make silicon-based films (such as polysilicon, silicon nitride, silicon carbide and others), as well as silicon nanowires and quantum dots will be discussed. CHS offers a more versatile, lower-cost and safer pathway to a variety of silicon based products being considered for flexible and printable electronics.
