Abstract:
This presentation describes our advances in fabricating a fully functional color, plastic liquid crystal display that uses an all-inorganic thin film transistor array based on a nanocrystalline II-VI semiconductor. The display itself represents an interesting context in which to explore the ways in which the key attributes of a flexible electronics platform are enhanced with nanostructured materials and processes, including inorganic nano-printing inks, nanocrystalline materials and nanocomposites, and nanostructured interfaces in combination with Smart PlasticTM substrates designed for dimensional stability to adapt to a range of top down display fabrication process variables.
