THICK FILMS OF ELECTROCERAMICS BY ELECTROPHORETIC DEPOSITION: ON THE WAY TO DEVICES
October 1-6, 2017
Electroceramics enable currently many important electronic and electro-optic devices. The applications are innumerous, ranging from capacitors, nonvolatile memories, pyroelectric sensors, surface acoustic wave (SAW) substrates, optical waveguides and optical memories and displays, semiconductor memories, piezoelectric actuators and sensors, microwave dielectrics, soft magnets and hardmagnets, among many others. The market is also large. The advanced ceramics market that includes ceramics for electrical and electronics, medical and bio-medical, transportation, industrial machinery, environmental, chemical, and defense and security, is predicted to be $9.5 billion by 2020. The electronics industry is one of the largest end-user industries of advanced ceramics with a share of more than 40% of the total market size (MarketsandMarkets, January 2017). To respond to the current societal needs electronics must be low cost, small, portable, connectable, flexible and compatible. Applications of electroceramic films are then ubiquitous. We believe that among the most versatile, low cost and sustainable processes to fabricate electroceramic films is Electrophoretic Deposition (EPD).
