Abstract: The use of thick films becomes more and more important
in particular for electronic and microelectronic applications. The term
thick film does not relate so much to the thickness of
the film but more to the kind of deposition. Thick films are made by
low-priced processes such as doctor (dr) blading, screen-printing, or
spraying methods, etc. The preparation of thick films of ceramic material
by these methods generally implies a processing sequence of the following
steps: preparation of the oxide powders; preparation of pastes and slurries;
painting/printing, etc.of the pastes onto a suitable substrate; drying
at low temperature; and sintering at high temperature to get a consolidated
layer. These technologies and the fabricated thick films of thermoresistive
and superconducting materials will be discussed.
