Technology for Forming Thin, Lightweight, Bendable Displays

At nano tech 2009, technology for forming thin, lightweight, bendable displays was presented, from the NEDO project on "Technological Development of Super-Flexible Display Components." Most ordinary semiconductor devices are made using vacuum processes such as deposition. For example, liquid crystal displays are made by forming arrays of color filters and transistors on a glass substrate.

Because the glass substrate is rigid, the displays cannot be bent, and break if they receive even a small impact. In the project, future plans include achieving A4 size large displays, and increasing the resolution by increasing the density and number of pixels. If such ultra-flexible displays can be implemented, it will be possible to make mobile phones that don't break even when placed under a lot of stress.
