Silver Ink Breakthrough Could Revolutionize Low-cost, Flexible Electronics

It seems that every day we see news about exciting breakthroughs in printable flexible electronic applications ranging from batteries to solar panels to wearable electronic clothing . We may look back upon the discovery of a particle-free, reactive silver ink by researchers at the University of Illinois as a turning point in revolutionizing the manufacturing of a wide range of such electronic products. Recognizing the amazing value of this breakthrough in conductive silver printing is as simple as comparing the existing process with the new process. Three major benefits stand out: Old: Hours of mixing and several process steps are required to produce solutions of silver micro-particles for the current state-of-the-art silver inks. New: The newly developed ink, consisting of silver acetate in ammonia solution, can be mixed in minutes. Old: Microparticles of silver jammed sm...
