    Abstract

    A drop-on-demand ink-jet printer has been used to print a silver-organic solution onto glass substrates. Conductive silver tracks were obtained by heat treatment of the ink-jet printed deposits at temperatures ranging from 12S °C-200 °C in air. Resistivity values were found to have dropped to two to three times the theoretical resisitivity of bulk silver after temperatures of 150 °C and above were used. © 2005 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
