Research PE Sintering of Conductive Inks Using Pulsed Light

To successfully sinter metallic inks requires precise control of variables within a defined process window to insure proper sintering without substrate damage. Pulsed Light meets the process requirements of silver, copper and numerous other metallic inks by delivering a rapid pulse of energy intense enough to sinter. Controlling peak energies, frequencies and how the energy is delivered provides the required thermal management and process control. And Pulsed Light provides a broad spectrum that addresses the variations in nano-particle size where the spectral absorption is size dependent.
