This chapter discusses the processes by which small drops of liquid are generated and delivered in inkjet printing, the rheological properties of the often complex fluids that are involved, the behavior of liquid drops during impact and spreading on a surface, and applications of inkjet printing to large-area electronics. Many methods for drop generation have been devised, but the most important methods used for inkjet printing are described as either "continuous inkjet" (CIJ) or "drop-on-demand" (DOD). Two physical properties dominate the behavior of the liquid jets and drops involved in inkjet printing: surface tension and viscosity. The viscosity of the liquid phase usually plays an important role in determining the flow properties of the ink. Inkjet printing technology encompasses the generation, control, and deposition of sub-100-μm liquid drops. New opportunities for inkjet printing are starting to be exploited commercially in the manufacture of high-value, high-precision electronic devices and systems.
