A Flexible E-Book Display Fabricated on a Stainless-Steel-Foil Substrate

In October 2005, LG.Philips LCD and E Ink Corp. introduced a 10-in. SVGA reflective-type flexible active-matrix electrophoretic display that was successfully fabricated on a thin stainless-steel-foil substrate. This prototype has a true paper-like appearance and feel, is extremely thin and light in weight, and features a wide-viewing angle and high contrast ratio.

The Path toward Flexible OLED Displays

By using a metal-foil substrate instead of glass, flexible OLED displays can be significantly thinner, lighter in weight, and more rugged than existing LCDs. This article describes the fabrication and performance of a full-color 100-ppi QVGA flexible PHOLED and discusses the current challenges and future prospects of this revolutionary display technology.
