Foldable Transistor Arrays Using Reversibly Foldable Interconnects and Stretchable Origami Substrates


Here is a cool application for ALD demonstrated by Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST), South Korea - Foldable Transistor Arrays Using Reversibly Foldable Interconnects and Stretchable Origami Substrates. Check out the video in the supplemntary information linked below! The Al2O3 was deposited using a LUCIDA D100 ALD reactor form NCD.

Here we demonstrate Fully-integrated, Bezel-less Transistor Arrays using stretchable origami substrates and foldable conducting interconnects. Reversible folding of these arrays is enabled by origami substrates which are composed of rigid support fixtures and foldable elastic joints. In addition, hybrid structures of metal thin film and metallic nanowires worked as foldable interconnects which are located on the elastomeric joints.
