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.
