Open Access research with a European policy impact...

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 European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

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.
