Abstract

With the recent prospect of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) print heads broadening their applications beyond digital printing for office use into industrial printing for the direct patterning of micro/nano devices and circuits, MEMS print heads have attracted renewed attention as a key player for realizing printed electronics. Cost-effectiveness, flexibility, and environmental friendliness in fabrication are the main drivers of industrial printing. This chapter introduces MEMS print heads—especially, a new type referred to here as the electrohydrodynamic (EHD) print head. This ...
