Display Materials - Next generation - Orthogonal
Organic electronics is a fast growing field with the potential to revolutionise consumer markets in lighting and displays. In the latter market, there is the promise of thin, lightweight and flexible displays based on plastic substrates where the electronic structures driving the display are made from organic semiconducting materials rather than silicon. One major issue in this field to date has been that the standard photoresist processes used for conventional glass substrates damage the organic semiconductors, requiring costly and cumbersome alternatives in their manufacture.
