Detailed Specs

The Aerosol Jet process uses aerodynamic focusing to precisely and accurately deposit electronic Inks onto substrates. The ink is placed into an atomizer (1), which creates a dense mist of material laden droplets between 1 to 5 microns diameter (2). The aerosol mist is then delivered to the deposition head where it is focused by a sheath gas (3), which surrounds the aerosol as an annular ring. Printed features range from 10 microns to millimeters. Electronic components such as resistors, capacitors, antennas, sensors, and thin film transistors have all been printed with Aerosol Jet technology. The performance parameters of printed components, for example the ohm value of a resistor, can be controlled through printing parameters. Components can also be printed onto 3 dimensional surfaces eliminating the need for a separate substrate thereby reducing the size, thickness and weight of the end product. For example, Aerosol Jet is used to print antennas and sensors that conform to the shape of the underlying substrate such as a cell phone case.
