Nanoparticle (NP) based printed and sintered films are expected to play an important role by lowering cost and adding functionality in various applications such as high temperature sensors, energy harvesters, batteries, and antennas used in smart electronic devices and systems. In this presentation, we discuss the recent advances in the area of Aerosol Jet (AJ) printed 2-D and 3-D films at WSU for various applications. Ag NP films are evaluated for high temperature sensor applications. It is shown that although the NP based printing provides an unprecedented control over the initial microstructure, a high temperature use of such films can affect its electrical characteristics due to the film microstructural changes. An application of the AJ printed films is demonstrated, namely, a highly sensitive printed capacitive touch sensor. Lastly, we also demonstrate recent advances in 2-D films on 3-D surfaces and 3-D films for various applications using the AJ method.
