- Silver offers advantages in electronic devices because of its conductive and other properties. But the process for using it has required high heat and organic stablizers, followed by post-heating treatments that are required to achieve a highly conductive path.
- OSU scientists have solved that problem by using a microreactor to create silver nanoparticles at room temperature without any protective coating, and then immediately printing them onto almost any substrate, with a continuous flow process.
- Because we could now use different substrates such as plastics, glass, or even paper, these electronics could be flexible, very inexpensive and stable.
New printing technology for depositing silver at room temperature may lead to electronics advances
