A novel approach in creating circuit electrodes with features as fine as 100 μm is demonstrated using a single 38 μm diameter orifice, piezoelectrically driven print head to deposit metallic nanoparticle suspensions. The suspensions consist of gold particles of ∼20 nm diameter suspended in toluene solvent. The amount of gold nanoparticles present in the suspension is 30% wt. Inductor and capacitor electrode patterns are deposited onto a glass substrate and thermally processed at 300°C for 15 minutes to drive off the solvent and allow the nanoparticles to sinter, thereby yielding a conductive path with a resistivity of O(10−7 ) Ω m.
