Copper nanopowders and the ICP manufacturing systems for printed electronic and anti-viral applications
In recent decades, copper nanoparticles have become critical for a wide range of applications, such as catalysts, lubricants, antivirals, and printed electronics. More specifically, this material has replaced silver in a variety of industries, including energy (photovoltaic cells, batteries, capacitors, superconductors), display (touch screen panel, OLED), and printed circuit boards.
The Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP) technology, developed and patented by Tekna, enables the cost-effective, industrial-scale manufacture of copper nanopowders specifically engineered for the next generation of the applications mentioned above. ICP technology produces high-purity nanoparticles with controlled particle size distribution (PSD) and surface chemistry. These characteristics are essential for quality conductive inks and pastes.
In the 4th edition of the Tekna Webinar Series, we will cover the industrial production process as well as the end-product characteristics of Tekna’s copper nanopowders. Furthermore, copper nanopowder applications will be discussed.
