  • Sinteron 2000 Photonic Curing
Jun 2010
Xenon Corp.Request Info
WILMINGTON, Mass., June 29, 2010 — Xenon Corp. has launched the Sinteron 2000 system for sintering, or annealing, conductive nanoparticles on heat-sensitive materials at low cost. Performing pulsed-light photonic curing, the system can sinter conductive inks in <1ms on a variety of materials such as paper, polyethylene films and polyethylene terephthalate.

The system is flexible, offering researchers the ability to adjust both the energy level and pulse durations delivered to the flashlamp. Its speed and low substrate heat – one flash in <1 ms at room temperatures with up to 2000 J – delivers good conductivity while offering the ability to sinter copper nano inks as well as silver. Prior to photonic technology, copper annealing had been a difficult challenge due to oxidation; now copper can be used effectively.

Applications include printed electronics in areas such as displays, smart cards, radio-frequency identification and solar. The noncontact process makes it suitable for such web-based printing techniques as ink-jet, flexography, gravure and screen-print.

The curing system features a high-energy pulsed xenon lamp that provides a broadband spectrum from 240 to 1000 nm. A 19-in. rack unit contains the power supply, controller and four pulse forming networks (PFNs). Easy connections for these PFN stages enable quick configuration of different pulse durations.

The process of heating and slowly cooling a solid material, like glass or metal, to stabilize its thermal, electrical or optical properties or, as in semiconductor materials, to reverse lattice damage resulting from ion implantation of dopants.
A rare gas used in small high-pressure arc lamps to produce a high-intensity source of light closely resembling the color quality of daylight.
