Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Because the toners for electrophotographic (laser) printing are based on electrically insulating organic polymers, digitally controlled patterned insulator layers can be printed directly. We fabricated Cr/printed-insulator/Cr capacitors with 10-μm- or 25-μm-thick laser-printed commercial toner layers as the dielectric between Cr electrodes. The capacitors had leakage currents of ∼1 nA/cm2 at the voltage of 100 V. The resistivity of the printed toner layer was ∼1013 Ω cm, the dielectric breakdown field ≥5×104 V/cm, and the dielectric constant ∼3.
