Importance of annealing temperature on the electrical conductivity of screen printed graphite organic paste

Muhammad Asnawi Kusaimi, Mohd Nizar Hamidon, Saman Azhari


The effects of annealing temperature on the electrical conductivity of graphite paste printed on alumina substrate were studied via two points probe I-V machine. The characteristics of the annealed material were studied using Raman spectroscopy. The results show that by increasing the annealing temperature the electrical conductivity increases. Raman results indicate that crystallization of the graphitic paste has direct relation with temperature of annealing process.
