Silver nanoparticle ink is injected into ink cartridges for an off-the-shelf printer to create cheap, foldable circuitry
The circuits are bendable, making them ideal for tight spaces
Georgia Tech's printed circuit technique could make it cheaper and faster for professionals and DIYers to create prototype electronics
Researchers at Georgia Tech have developed a new technique to print advanced, ink-based electrical circuitry on a desktop printer. After about US$300 in equipment costs, the researchers were able to print arbitrary-shaped circuits on resin-coated paper, PET film, and glossy photo paper with silver nanoparticle ink.
