Inkjet Printed Polyimide Films for Capacitors

Fan Zhang, Christopher Tuck, Richard Hague, Yinfeng He, Ehab Saleh, You Li, Craig Sturgess and Ricky Wildman present the first continuous fabrication of inkjet-printed polyimide films in the Journal of Applied Polymer Science. The films were then used as insulating layers in capacitors. Polyimide films are traditionally fabricated by lithography, requiring the use of photoresist that […]
