INTRODUCTION

Printed electronics (sometimes referred to as PE) represent a growing technology for fabricating electronic devices on materials such as paper, plastic, and textiles using electrically functional inks in combination with standard printing processes such as screen printing, offset lithography, and ink-jet printing. Printed electronics are steadily proving that they have the potential to bring about a revolution in electronic applications.

Proponents of the technology initially emphasized printed electronics’ ability to make many electronic devices more inexpensively and more quickly than conventional silicon-based electronics technologies. Printed electronics’ simpler research and development (R&D) and manufacturing process can reduce the capital cost of a fabrication plant by several times and also decrease the time to market new products from several months to a couple of weeks.

Later, proponents emphasized the advantages of printed electronics in terms of light weight and portability. They talked of a hypothetical mobile phone the size and shape of a fountain pen, with both display and keyboard printed on a snap-back roller. The same snap-back roller would generate and store electricity from light and heat.
