Fabrication Of Solderable Intense Pulsed Light Sintered Hybrid Copper For Flexible Conductive Electrodes

Additively printed circuits provide advantages in reduced waste, rapid prototyping, and versatile flexible substrate choices relative to conventional circuit printing. Copper (Cu) based inks along with intense pulsed light (IPL) sintering can be used in additive circuit printing. However, IPL sintered Cu typically suffer from poor solderability due ...

Potential for Multi-Functional Additive Manufacturing Using Pulsed Photonic Sintering

This paper proposes the integration of pulsed photonic sintering into multi-material additive manufacturing processes in order to produce multifunctional components that would be nearly impossible to produce any other way. Pulsed photonic curing uses high power Xenon flash lamps to thermally fuse printed nanomaterials such as conductive metal inks. To determine ...

Photonic Flash Soldering on Flex Foils for Flexible Electronic Systems

Ultrathin bare die chips were soldered using a novel soldering technology. Using homogeneous flash light generated by high-power xenon flash lamp the dummy components and the bare die NFC chips were successfully soldered to copper tracks on polyimide (PI) and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) flex foils by using industry standard Sn-Ag-Cu lead free alloys. Due to the selectivity of light absorption, a limited temperature increase was ...

Reflow Soldering Method With Gradient Energy Band Generated By Optical System

Laser reflow soldering is an important technology in electronic components processing. In this paper, we presented a simple but efficient method to achieve reflow soldering process with gradient energy band created by just two parallel mirrors. The detailed influence of the variety of optical parameters on the soldering process has been analyzed by using ...
