Abstract
The primary goal of printing electronics is to create
structures and devices that are functionally similar to conventional
electronics, but at greater speed, lower cost and less production
complexity. The applications that will be affected by lower cost of
electronics include RFID tags, solar cells, displays, chemical
sensors, etc. In this work, effects of paper properties and their
effect on sheet resistivity of gravure printed PEDOT:PSS layers
were evaluated. Among paper properties, it was observed that
absorptivity and ink penetration had negative effect on
conductivity. The higher the ink penetration into the substrate
surface the lower the conductivity. Moreover, surface energy of the
substrates needs to be in balance with surface tension of the
conductive inks.
Introduction
Nowadays, printing is seen in a new light for the fabrication
