J. Micro Nano-Manuf 6(4), 040802 (Nov 29, 2018) (20 pages) Paper No: JMNM-18-1029; doi: 10.1115/1.4041934 History: Received August 20, 2018; Revised October 19, 2018

The paper provides an overview of high-resolution electrohydrodynamic (EHD) printing processes for general applications in high-precision micro/nanoscale fabrication and manufacturing. Compared with other printing approaches, EHD printing offers many unique advantages and opportunities in the printing resolution, tunable printing modes, and wide material applicability, which has been successfully applied in numerous applications that include additive manufacturing, printed electronics, biomedical sensors and devices, and optical and photonic devices. In this review, the EHDs-based printing mechanism and the resulting printing modes are described, from which various EHD printing processes were developed. The material applicability and ink printability are discussed to establish the critical factors of the printable inks in EHD printing. A number of EHD printing processes and printing systems that are suitable for micro/nanomanufacturing applications are described in this paper. The recent progresses, opportunities, and challenges of EHD printing are reviewed for a range of potential application areas.

High-resolution EHD printing: (a) schematic illustration of an EHD printing system. A voltage is connected to the nozzle and the electrode under the substrate to eject the ink with electrostatic force. (b) A typical nozzle and substrate configuration for EHD printing. Ink ejects from the apex of the conical meniscus that forms at the tip of the nozzle owing to the action of a voltage applied between the tip and ink, and the underlying substrate. These droplets eject onto a moving substrate to produce designed patterns (Reproduced with permission from Park et al. [17]. Copyright 2007 by Nature Publishing Group). (c) Mechanism of EHD printing with typical forces acting on the fluid surface. Hydrodynamic force (Fh), which supplies fluid to the meniscus; the surface tension force (Fγ), which hangs the droplets on the capillary tip; and the electrostatic force (FE), which deforms the meniscus into the cone shape and eject droplets or jet from the cone tip. S, L, and G indicate the solid phase, liquid phase, and the gas phase, respectively (Reproduced with permission from Lee et al. [19]. Copyright 2013 by American Chemical Society).
