Abstract

This paper presents an experimental investigation of the novel thermal manufacturing process of printing and laser curing of nanoparticle-laden inks that can produce functional microstructures such as electronic microresistors and interconnections for semiconductors and other devices. Of specific interest are the complex and interweaved transport phenomena involved, focusing on the absorption and diffusion processes of irradiated laser energy influencing solvent vaporization, the nanoparticle curing process, the substrate, and the final quality of the produced resistor. Parametric studies of the thermal process together with extensive microscopy analysis of the topography and resistivity measurements piece together a better understanding of the underlying physics and aid the development of the technology.
