In recent years, printed device research is getting increasing attention due to its potential of reducing device production cost and energy consumption by solution-processing of materials building blocks at low temperature, as well as its ease of device integration and promise to adopt flexible form factors. Although the idea of fabricating device components by printing is quite intriguing, its maturity and widespread adoption will only be possible through the combined efforts of materials development, ink formulations, advanced processing, tool engineering, and system integration. In this area, much of the work has been emphasized on devices (solar cells, transistors, memory and many other types) based on easily printable carbon-containing organic materials, but poor performance is the major issue impeding potential applications. In contrast, pure inorganic materials are difficult to print, but once printed generally exhibit better device performances compared to their organic counterparts. This symposium will focus on recent developments in selection of inorganic materials, ink formulations, processing and integration approaches for printed device applications. It will also address some of the scientific and engineering challenges researchers are facing in solution depositing a variety of inorganic films for applications in the area of sensors, displays, solar cells and computing devices. The aspects to be covered in this symposium include solution based material growth, chemistry of inorganic inks, fabrication of functional thin films, patterning, high throughput processing, advanced characterization techniques, establishment of processing-structure-property relationship and device level integration.
