Inkjet printing differs fundamentally from more conventional printing methods, in that the precise location of each drop of ink deposited on the paper is under digital control. This means that the pattern being printed can be varied very easily. Instead of ink, the technique can also be used to deposit a wide range of different materials, and thus inkjet printing provides a uniquely powerful and flexible tool for manipulating materials on a small scale. This talk will describe the fundamental mechanisms involved in the generation of small liquid drops, and provide some examples of applications of inkjet printing as a manufacturing process.
