|Inkjet Materials Technology
Digital inkjet technology is gaining tremendous importance from a materials technology perspective. The underlying printhead technology as well as the development of new non-graphical technologies enabled by inkjet printing is advancing rapidly. For instance, recent advances in MEMS technology has allowed the development of advanced piezoelectric drop-on-demand print heads. The precise microdeposition achieved by inkjet printing is a key enabler of the emerging OLED (organic light emitting displays) manufacturing and biosensors. In this newsletter, Baverstam explores the inkjet technology both from a technology standpoint as well as the new applications it is enabling and provides a sampling of interesting recent developments and announcements.
