Klokkenburg, M. Hendriks, C.E. Schubert, U.S. TNO Industrie en Techniek Publication year 2009 Abstract Microwave flash sintering of inkjet printed colloidal silver dispersions on thin polymer substrates was studied as a function of the antenna area and initial resistance. The presence of conductive antennae promotes nanoparticle sintering in predried ink lines. For dried nanoparticle inks connected to antennae, sintering times of 1 s are sufficient to obtain pronounced nanoparticle sintering and conductivities between 10 and 34% compared to bulk silver. © 2009 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
