Tiivistelmä

We report for the first time the deposition antennas on textiles using the direct write dispensing of a copper ink. We outline the steps of the dispensing process and share our insight on how to control it on the rough and porous textile surface. The well-known heat sintering is not applicable on copper inks. Below we outline the process of intense pulsed light sintering to form copper based electro-textile. Using the manufactured electro-textile antenna we have assembled a fully functional radio-frequency identification tag. We compare its performance with other tags based on electro-textile antennas manufactured with several other methods and materials.
