METHOD FOR FORMING WIRING

NATIONAL UNIVERSITY CORPO...

1. A method for forming a wiring having a structure in which wiring elements between which an insulating resin layer is interposed
are connected via a contact hole, the method comprising:
applying a metal nanoparticle ink that exhibits electrical conductivity upon light absorption to a contact hole formation
portion of an upper face of the insulating resin layer formed on a lower wiring element; and

irradiating the metal nanoparticle ink with light to render metal nanoparticles included the metal nanoparticle ink conductive
and sintered by the irradiated light and also to remove a part of the insulating resin layer by heat emitted from the metal
nanoparticle ink so as to form the contact hole, the part of the insulating resin layer lying under the portion of the face
to which the metal nanoparticle ink is applied,

wherein when the contact hole is formed, a process in which the metal nanoparticles become sintered and conductive proceeds
in parallel with a process in which the part of the insulating resin layer melts, decomposes, and disappears by action of
heat.

METHOD FOR PRODUCING METAL THIN FILM AND CONDUCTIVE STRUCTURE

NATIONAL UNIVERSITY CORPO...

1. A method for producing a metal thin film, comprising, in the following order, the steps of:
preparing a substrate having thereon an underlayer formed of an insulating resin;
subjecting a surface of the underlayer to a physical surface treatment for breaking bonds of organic molecules constituting
the insulating resin;

subjecting the substrate to a heat treatment at a temperature of 50° C. or more and 200° C. or lower;
applying a metal nanoparticle ink to the underlayer; and
sintering metal nanoparticles contained in the metal nanoparticle ink at a temperature equal to or higher than a glass transition
temperature of the underlayer and thereby forming a fused layer that fuses the underlayer and a metal thin film together at
an interface therebetween, the metal thin film being formed by sintering the metal nanoparticles.

PRODUCTION METHOD OF POLYURETHANE POROUS MEMBRANE TO BE USED FOR AT LEAST ONE OF APPLICATIONS OF CELL CULTURE AND CANCER CELL GROWTH INHIBITION

TOYODA GOSEI CO., LTD., ...

1. A production method of a polyurethane porous membrane to be used for at least one of applications of cell culture and cancer
cell growth inhibition, the production method of the polyurethane porous membrane comprising:
a first step of forming a layer of uncured polyurethane material on a substrate, the layer of uncured polyurethane material
having a first surface adjacent the substrate and an exposed surface opposite the first surface; and

a second step of supplying water vapor and contacting the exposed surface of the layer of uncured polyurethane material formed
on the substrate with an effective amount of the water vapor effective to cure the uncured polyurethane material and to convert
the uncured polyurethane material into a polyurethane porous membrane with a porous structure having a thickness of 0.1 to
100 ?m and including a plurality of pores open to the exposed surface having an average pore diameter of 0.1 to 100 ?m, the
plurality of pores open to the exposed surface forming a plurality of irregularities on the exposed surface, wherein

the porous structure of the polyurethane porous membrane only contains a single pore extending along a membrane thickness
direction of the polyurethane porous membrane.
