Applied Materials Joins Flexible Display Center at Arizona State University

Tempe, AZ | Posted on November 20th, 2008

The Flexible Display Center is a government - university - academia partnership, whose mission is to advance the development and commercialization of full-color flexible electronic display technologies. Formed through a 10-year cooperative agreement between the U.S. Army and Arizona State University, the FDC also partners with many of the world's leading providers of advanced display technology, materials and process equipment such as LG Display, HP, E Ink, Universal Display Corporation, DuPont Teijin Films, EV Group, as well as leading display technology integrators such as General Dynamics, Raytheon, Boeing, Honeywell, and L3 Communications.

"Successful growth of the display industry will require continuous technology and process development to improve performance and reduce cost per area," said Dr. Gilad Almogy, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Applied Materials' Display Business and Thin Film Solar Products Group. "We are pleased to be part of the FDC which brings together resources and expertise from government, university and industry to enable these critical advancements. Through this alliance, we expect to achieve new breakthroughs that will broaden our technology portfolio and contribute to the expanding applications for digital displays."

"Over the past five years, the Flexible Display Center has created a proven collaborative partnership model with over 20 engaged industry members," said Gregory B. Raupp, FDC Director. "In only a few short months we have initiated collaboration with Applied Materials that enables Applied to test its industry-leading thin film deposition technology using FDC's world-class infrastructure and to produce first versions of a new advanced thin film transistor (TFT) technology for flexible displays. We look forward to working with Applied on R&D and commercialization acceleration efforts."
