Frontline Technology: Enabling Wearable and Other Novel Applications through Flexible TFTs
Mechanical flexibility is a key feature for the next generation of display-based electronic products. An essential component of this capability is flexible TFT technology, which requires a materials set specifically designed to perform optimally under mechanical stress. Progress to this end has been made by several companies, including Polyera Corp.

Frontline Technology: Bulk-Accumulation Oxide-TFT Backplane Technology for Flexible and Rollable AMOLEDs: Part I
In the first of a two-part series on a new backplane technology for flexible and rollable AMOLEDs, the author reviews a bulk-accumulation (BA) amorphous indium-gallium-zinc-oxide (a-IGZO) thin-film transistor (TFT) with 3ñ5 times the drain current of a comparable conventional single-gate TFT. The advantages of BA TFTs include excellent performance from circuits such as ring oscillators and gate drivers and also higher robustness under mechanical bending.
