Ultra-low sintering temperature silver molybdenum oxide (Ag2Mo2O7) ceramics have been printed using direct ink writing (a material extrusion additive manufacturing process) for the first time. An optimum densification conditions of 460 °C / 2 h was determined, resulting in relative permittivity, εr = 13.45, dielectric loss, tanδ = 0.0005, microwave quality factor, Q × f = 17,056 GHz and the temperature coefficient of resonant frequency τf = −121 ppm/°C. The results were comparable to the dielectric properties of conventionally fabricated ceramics. A series of metal/ceramic antenna designs were produced via dual-printing and co-firing, to demonstrate the potential of Ag2Mo2O7, to be used as a co-firable dielectric material for functional integrated circuits and/or microwave RF devices through multi-material direct ink writing.
