Researchers propose technique to eliminate need for substrates, chips, boards

Abstract:
Instead of fabricating circuits on chips and soldering them to printed-circuit boards, Canadian researchers propose painting transparent "solution-processed" circuits directly onto a device's surface. Such semiconductor circuits—from emitters for large-area displays to detectors for spray-on solar cells—could drastically lower the cost of electronic devices, the group says. "We are reporting the first high-performance semiconductor device made by solution processing," said research group leader Ted Sargent, a University of Toronto professor in electrical engineering and the Canada Research chair in nanotechnology.
