The photonic curing systems announced by NovaCentrix Corp. instantly cure metal nanoparticle-based inks by exposing them to a brief and intense pulse of light from a xenon flashlamp. They quickly and selectively heat and fuse nanoscale metallic ink particles to form highly conductive traces without heating the base substrate material. A pilot-scale system cures Metalon-brand inks on films at speeds of up to 50 ft/min. The company also offers photonic curing services to companies or researchers interested in determining the impact and benefits of photonic curing with various nanometal-based inks and substrates.
