Introduction to LIFT (Laser Induced Forward Transfer): Technology and Challenges
TNO at Holst Centre
LIFT is an emerging digital printing technology, which some characterize as digitization of screen printing. This technique can achieve high-throughput digital printing of multi-materials on various substrates. Uniquely unlike inkjet printing, it can also handle highly viscous pastes and materials, thus uniquely opening a digital technique for their precision printing.
In this Masterclass, you will learn about the basics of the LIFT process, its current capabilities and limitations in terms of printable materials, viscosities, resolutions and printing speeds, and also recent technological advances enabling high-throughput integration of microcomponents (e.g., microLEDs) through printing of very fine interconnects and mass transfer assembly.
