Room-Temperature Sinterable Copper-Gold Alloy Nanoparticle Inks
This new technology features a new copper-gold (CuAu) alloy nanoparticle ink technology in which the CuAu alloy nanoparticle ink can be printed on a substrate and become electrically conductive at room temperature without the need of any external triggering actions. In comparison with existing room-temperature sinterable Ag nanoink technology or thermally/optically-sinterable Cu nanoink technology, the new CuAu nanoparticles feature not only adjustable compositions, but also can be used for the same applications but with the major advantage of high stability.
In comparison with existing room-temperature sinterable Ag nanoink technology, the new copper-gold nanoparticle inks can be used for the same applications with a major advantage: high stability, which is a major drawback for Ag nanoinks. This advantage is highly desired for high-performance electronics and device applications.
