Printed flexible OLED display Researchers from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities and Korea Institute of Industrial Technology used a customized 3D printer to print a flexible OLED display. “OLED displays are usually produced in big, expensive, ultra-clean fabrication facilities,” said Michael McAlpine, a professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at University of Minnes... » read more

Technical Paper Round-Up: March 22


New memories, materials, and transistor types, and processes for making those devices, highlighted the past week's technical papers. That includes everything from vertical MoS2 to programmable black phosphorus image sensors and photonic lift-off processes for flexible thin-film materials. Papers continue to flow from all parts of the supply chain, with some new studies out of Pakistan, Seoul... » read more

Large-area photonic lift-off process for flexible thin-film transistors


Abstract "Fabricating flexible electronics on plastic is often limited by the poor dimensional stability of polymer substrates. To mitigate, glass carriers are used during fabrication, but removing the plastic substrate from a carrier without damaging the electronics remains challenging. Here we utilize a large-area, high-throughput photonic lift-off (PLO) process to rapidly separate polymer f... » read more
