Paper Abstract

Further development of printed electronics requires investigations of new polymer composites which can be coated on flexible substrates with printing techniques. These composites should exhibit low sheet resistance and high durability to thermal stresses. In this article, the properties of polymer composites prepared by mixing a commercial solution of poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene):poly(styrenesulfonate) (PEDOT:PSS) in aliphatic hydrocarbons with multi-wall carbon nanotubes or graphite platelet nanofibers were described. These composites were coated on flexible and low-cost substrates with screen printing techniques. The microstructure of fabricated layers were observed in a top and cross-sectional view and their thickness was measured with a contact profilometer. Their resistance was measured with a four-point-probe method depending on a printing multiplicity and after exposure the tested samples to the influence of temperature variation. Temperature distribution under influence of current flow in the produced layers was also examined.
