Copper nanoparticle (NP) inks offer lower cost conductors compared with the more common silver conductors used for flexible electronics applications. However, oxidation occurs during conventional oven-curing limiting their use. This paper reports screen/inkjet printed copper conductors, cured using a laser, on flexible Kapton (Polyimide), PET (Polyethylene terephthalate), paper and polyester/cotton fabric in ambient air. The results show that copper NP inks can be laser sintered without oxidation or damage to these flexible substrates.
