Description

We will talk about the basics of printing technology focusing on silk screen printing and discuss the different possibilities of printed electronic circuits. In the lab we experiment with conductive ink, the students will develop their own ideas and projects making use of printed electronics.

Kursinhalt

Wir beschäftigen uns zunächst mit den Grundlagen der Druckverfahren mit Schwerpunkt auf dem Siebdruck und diskutieren die Möglichkeiten gedruckter Schaltkreise. In der Werkstatt experimentieren wir dann mit leitfähigen Druckfarben und die Studierenden können selbstständig Projekte mit gedruckter Elektronik entwickeln.
