Drop-on-demand (DoD) ink-jet printing is an efficient technology for depositing picoliter drops on various printing surfaces. DoD technology is compatible with various liquids and does not require contacting the printing media. DoD inkjet printing combines several advantages including high speed, quiet operation, and compatibility with a variety of printing surfaces. Moreover, DoD printing can make patterns without any additional lithographic process. Ink-jet printing can reduce the number of processing steps compared to conventional patterning processes, which results in a lower production cost. Therefore, DoD ink-jet technology is applied in many engineering and scientific applications (see Figure 1), such as the formation of the conductive tracks for printed circuit boards, color filters in flat panel displays and plasma displays, polymer light-emitting diode displays, organic transistors, and the construction of DNA microarrays [1]-[5].
