Laser printing of organic/inorganic material for the fabrication of electronic devices

Laser printing of organic/inorganic material for the fabrication of electronic devices

Objective

The main purpose of this project is the development of the Laser-Induced Forward Transfer (LIFT) process that permits the deposition of a wide variety of materials, with high spatial resolution (a few micrometers) for the manufacturing of electronic devices. It has been successfully applied so far in laboratory-scale trials for the deposition of organic and inorganic compounds, polymers and biomaterials on various substrates and the realisation of devices such as OLEDs or TFTs. This process will address the same market as inkjet printing, but it should be significantly faster, does not require any post-annealing, allows for the deposition of multilayer structures without any risk of undesirable material mixing and can enable printing of a wide range of materials and phases. The ability of printing such a diverse range of materials with a unique process opens up new perspectives for increasing the performances of devices. The aim of the present project is to integrate the expertise in laser physics, chemistry and microelectronics from academics, integrators and product manufacturers from industry in order to validate this technology, define its capabilities and its limits, and finally to ensure its successful transfer towards real-world applications in manufacturing.- Our first objective is to optimize the LIFT process for representative materials and substrates (flexible and rigid) in order to solve the potential technological blocking points and to determine the process windows.- The second objective is to validate the LIFT process. Some specific applications will be addressed and that will lead to the realisation and characterisation of components like TFTs, OLEDs, sensors, energy harvesters, and the laser printing of the most promising of these composites onto RFID tags. This scientific effort will pave the way to the definition of the laser printing prototype together with reliability and productivity considerations.
