Abstract

Polymer thick film (PTF) resistors were fabricated using a new laser-based transfer technique called matrix-assisted pulsed laser evaporation direct write (MAPLE-DW). MAPLE-DW is a versatile direct writing technique capable of writing a wide variety of materials on virtually any substrate in air and at room temperature. Epoxy-based PTF resistors spanning four decades of sheet resistances (10 Ω/sq. to 100 kΩ/sq.) were deposited on alumina substrates under ambient conditions. Electrical characteristics of these MAPLE-DW deposited resistors were studied at a wide frequency range (1 MHz to 1.8 GHz), and the results were explained through an equivalent circuit model and impedance spectroscopy. Temperature coefficient of resistance measurements for the PTF resistors were performed between 25 and 125 °C. The results based on the percolation theory were used to explain the temperature dependence of the resistance behavior of the PTF resistors.
