Title: Producing layered structures using printing

Abstract: A layered structure is produced on a support structure's surface. The layered structure can include a component that responds electrically to thermal signals, such as a thermistor, and can also include a layer part that has a printed patterned artifact such as an uneven boundary or an alignment. A layered structure can be produced by depositing a layer of material, printing a mask, and removing the exposed part of the layer.
