Investigation on Post Treatment of Nano-Size Silver Conductive Film
To achieve a satisfied conductivity of nano-size silver printed circuit, post deal with nano-size silver conductive film was investigated. Based on the preparation of nano-size conductive ink and conductive circuit, the coated conductive film was treated by series concentrations of hydrochloride solutions, and then scanned by laser beam. The influence of resolutions concentration and dipping time were investigated separately. Atomic force microscopy (AFM), fourier transform infrared (FTIR) and four-probe tester, were applied to characterize the different tested samples. It was found that when the coated silver conductive ink samples were dipped in 20% hydrochloride for 60min, 15°C before laser scanning, the conductivity reaches 0.3Ω/□. It is therefore considered that the “dip in” method provide an efficient alternative to improve the conductivity which from nano-size silver ink.
