Abstract

Ink-jet printing has the advantage of easy formation of micro-patterns on rigid as well as flexible surfaces without needing conventional lithographic processes. By means of printing in selected areas, diamond seeding in designed patterns and areas is achieved. Properly designed ink with a desirable composition helps the formation of patterned structures with tailored functions. Ink containing nano-diamond particles was designed and used to print micro-structures, which were applied for further CVD growth of diamond by means of microwave plasma CVD. Promising applications of this technique are discussed.
