Laser-printed micro- and meso-scale power generating devices

A. Piqué,     Naval Research Laboratory, USA

Abstract:

This chapter describes how laser direct-write (LDW) processes can be applied to the rapid prototyping of micro- and meso-scale power sources. The chapter reviews the use of laser-induced forward transfer (LIFT) to deposit patterns of complex suspensions comprising the functional materials required for printing ultracapacitors, primary and secondary batteries and dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSC). The chapter describes the preparation of embedded microbatteries via LDW and concludes with a discussion on the present and future status of these laser-based digital microfabrication techniques.
