Photonic curing has been shown to be effective in heating inks and functional films to very high temperatures, in excess of 1000 degrees C, on low-temperature substrates such as polymers and paper.
The use of this thermal processing method has been explored previously in the literature for sintering, annealing, and reacting materials such as metal-based electrically conductive inks.
The authors have applied this technique to drying, and show that pulse conditions as well as pulse architecture play a key role in producing good results.
