Technique For Printing Electronic Circuits Onto Curved & Corrugated Surfaces Using Metal Nanowires (NC State)


A technical paper titled “Curvilinear soft electronics by micromolding of metal nanowires in capillaries” was published by researchers at North Carolina State University.

“We’ve developed a technique that doesn’t require binding agents and that allows us to print on a variety of curvilinear surfaces,” says Yuxuan Liu, first author of the paper and a Ph.D. student at NC State in this university news article. ‘It also allows us to print the circuits as grid structures with uniform thickness.”

Potential applications include contact lenses, pressure-sensitive latex gloves, transparent electrodes, sensors, optoelectronic devices and more.
