Abstract

In this research, „Droplet Based Direct Write‟ micro/nano manufacturing is investigated using a molecular dynamics modeling and simulation approach. The aim of this investigation is characterization of the direct write inkjet printing process to promote optimization for the enhancement of scalability. The study was completed in four phases; nanodroplet evaporation modeling, substrate-nanodroplet interaction modeling, nanodroplet impingement study and nanodroplet-patterned substrate interaction modeling.
