||A method for selective metallization of polymers
||Technical University of Denmark, DTU, DK-2800 Kgs. Lyngby, Denmark
||This master thesis describes the theory of a new proposed method suitable for selective metallization of polymers. Further, through the use of specially manufactured process equipment, the method is demonstrated in practice.
The work documents the possibility of implementing well-known printing techniques in the selective structuring process step within the method.
Analyses involving Atomic Force Microscopy, Scanning Electron Microscopy, Fourier Transformed Infra Red Spectroscopy serves to document the adhesion mechanism obtained with the method.
Further, peel tests have been performed in quest of determining the process windows and to benchmark the obtained adhesions against state-of-the-art methods.
