Description/Usage: Ink-jet printer allows direct patterning of 2D (nano) structures from polymeric sols or colloidal dispersions (inks) without the critical step of material removal as typical for lithographic techniques. The fluids should have suitable viscosity, surface tension and contact angle on a selected substrate. The precision of deposition depends on the drop size which is controlled both by the properties of the fluid as well as by the prinitng parameters. The thickness of a deposit typically ranges from a few nm to a few 10 nm.The majority of ceramic structures require an additional step of thermal treatment, whereby the selection of temperature depends on thermal properties of the substrate and on the application.
