ITRI: Technology Advances in Flexible Displays and Substrates

  • Tags:

This paper reports the latest technological advances made by the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) in flexible displays, especially the flexible substrate, thin-film transistor (TFT) backplane, and active matrix organic light-emitting diode display. Using the leading cholesteric liquid crystal technology of ITRI, we develop a rewritable, environmentally friendly thermal printable e-paper. The e-paper, devised to reduce traditional paper consumption, achieves a high resolution of 300 dpi with a memory function. In addition, we report on the ITRI's initial success in demonstrating a complete R2R process for multisensing touch panels on 100- $mu{rm m}$ thick flexible glass substrates provided by Corning.
