First Jet-printed Plastic Transistor Arrays

The Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) has developed the first plastic semiconductor transistor array entirely patterned using jet printing. Jet printing will lower the cost of active-matrix display backplanes by replacing vacuum deposition and photolithography in current manufacturing. The technology is also expected to open up new markets for wall-sized TV's, unbreakable cell phone displays, rollable displays, and electronic paper.
