Abstract
The present work considers the suitability of gravure printing
in electronics manufacture. Different engraving methods are
described in terms of resolution and quality. The properties
influencing printability of conductive polymer inks, more
specifically surface tension and substrate wetting are discussed in
greater detail.
Introduction
Organic materials used in the manufacture of electronics are
becoming more and more attractive since the discovery of a certain
class of polymers being able to transport the charge and thus
conduct electricity1
. Nowadays, organic electronics give a rise to
increasing interest due to potentially lower cost, easier
processability and rapid progress in performance of such devices
in recent years2
. The most important cost advantage of organic
