From droplet formation to final applications, this practical book presents the subject in a comprehensive and clear form, using only content derived from the latest published results. Starting at the very beginning, the topic of fluid mechanics is explained, allowing for a suitable regime for printing inks to subsequently be selected. There then follows a discussion on different print-head types and how to form droplets, covering the behavior of droplets in flight and upon impact with the substrate, as well as the droplet's wetting and drying behavior at the substrate. Commonly observed effects, such as the coffee ring effect, are included as well as printing in the third dimension. The book concludes with a look at what the future holds. As a unique feature, worked examples both at the practical and simulation level, as well as case studies and videos are included. As a result, students and engineers in R&D will come to fully understand the complete process of inkjet printing.

Dieses ist der erste Band einer Reihe "Werkstoffe und Bauelemente" mit den Folgebänden "Halbleiter", "Sensoren" und "Quanten", in denen die Grundla gen der Werkst off wissenschaften und Festkörperphysik und deren Anwendung auf die Herstellung und Funktionsweise elektronischer Bauelemente dargestellt werden. Dabei wird angestrebt, die theoretischen Grundlagen der Werkstoffseite (überwiegend Eigenschaften von Atomen und Festkörpern) mit denen der Bau elementseite (Eigenschaften von Elektronen und Dipolen) weitgehend zu ver einheitlichen. Es wird ausgegangen von bekannten Prinzipien der Thermo dynamik, die in vereinfachter Form eingeführt und weiterentwickelt werden. Eine zentrale Rolle spielt dabei das chemische Potential (in der Halbleiterphy sik Fermi-Energie genannt), dieses ist bestimmend für das Transportverhalten, sowie die thermischen und galvanischen Eigenschaften der Systeme. Im Vordergrund steht das Ziel, ein auf Anschauung begründetes und trotz dem theoretisch fundiertes Verständnis für den Aufbau und das Verhalten der elektronischen Bauelemente zu vermitteln. Die physikalischen und mathema tischen Grundlagen werden in möglichst einfacher Form dargestellt, so daß nur Grundkenntnisse der Mathematik (Differential- und Integralrechnung, Vektor und Matrizenrechnung) vorausgesetzt werden müssen. Die Buchreihe ist daher besonders geeignet für Studenten der Technischen Universitäten und Fach hochschulen. Sie ist aber auch ausgelegt zum Selbststudium, zur fachlichen Weiterbildung von Studenten anderer Fachrichtungen und für den Anwender in der industriellen Praxis.

Whilst inkjet technology is well-established on home and smalloffice desktops and is now having increasing impact in commercialprinting, it can also be used to deposit materials other than inkas individual droplets at a microscopic scale. This allows metals,ceramics, polymers and biological materials (including livingcells) to be patterned on to substrates under precise digitalcontrol. This approach offers huge potential advantages formanufacturing, since inkjet methods can be used to generatestructures and functions which cannot be attained in otherways. Beginning with an overview of the fundamentals, this bookcoversthe key components, for example piezoelectric print-heads andfluids for inkjet printing, and the processes involved. It goes onto describe specific applications, e.g. MEMS, printed circuits,active and passive electronics, biopolymers and living cells, andadditive manufacturing. Detailed case studies are included onflat-panel OLED displays, RFID (radio-frequency identification)manufacturing and tissue engineering, while a comprehensiveexamination of the current technologies and future directions ofinkjet technology completes the coverage. With contributions from both academic researchers and leadingnames in the industry, Inkjet Technology for DigitalFabrication is a comprehensive resource for technicaldevelopment engineers, researchers and students in inkjettechnology and system development, and will also appeal toresearchers in chemistry, physics, engineering, materials scienceand electronics.

From the Introduction: Nanotechnology and its underpinning sciences are progressing with unprecedented rapidity. With technical advances in a variety of nanoscale fabrication and manipulation technologies, the whole topical area is maturing into a vibrant field that is generating new scientific research and a burgeoning range of commercial applications, with an annual market already at the trillion dollar threshold. The means of fabricating and controlling matter on the nanoscale afford striking and unprecedented opportunities to exploit a variety of exotic phenomena such as quantum, nanophotonic and nanoelectromechanical effects. Moreover, researchers are elucidating new perspectives on the electronic and optical properties of matter because of the way that nanoscale materials bridge the disparate theories describing molecules and bulk matter. Surface phenomena also gain a greatly increased significance; even the well-known link between chemical reactivity and surface-to-volume ratio becomes a major determinant of physical properties, when it operates over nanoscale dimensions. Against this background, this comprehensive work is designed to address the need for a dynamic, authoritative and readily accessible source of information, capturing the full breadth of the subject. Its six volumes, covering a broad spectrum of disciplines including material sciences, chemistry, physics and life sciences, have been written and edited by an outstanding team of international experts. Addressing an extensive, cross-disciplinary audience, each chapter aims to cover key developments in a scholarly, readable and critical style, providing an indispensible first point of entry to the literature for scientists and technologists from interdisciplinary fields. The work focuses on the major classes of nanomaterials in terms of their synthesis, structure and applications, reviewing nanomaterials and their respective technologies in well-structured and comprehensive articles with extensive cross-references. It has been a constant surprise and delight to have found, amongst the rapidly escalating number who work in nanoscience and technology, so many highly esteemed authors willing to contribute. Sharing our anticipation of a major addition to the literature, they have also captured the excitement of the field itself in each carefully crafted chapter. Along with our painstaking and meticulous volume editors, full credit for the success of this enterprise must go to these individuals, together with our thanks for (largely) adhering to the given deadlines. Lastly, we record our sincere thanks and appreciation for the skills and professionalism of the numerous Elsevier staff who have been involved in this project, notably Fiona Geraghty, Megan Palmer and Greg Harris, and especially Donna De Weerd-Wilson who has steered it through from its inception. We have greatly enjoyed working with them all, as we have with each other.
