Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Materials, Processes & Tools for Roll-to-Roll Fabrication of Flexible Devices & Electronics" report to their offering.
Printed and flexible electronics technology has advanced to the stage where inexpensively printing high performance devices through a continuous process promises to revolutionize advanced manufacturing. Emerging materials and processes will make it possible to economically generate high value-added technology products at meters-per-minute rates on plastic film, paper, or metal foil substrates, and to achieve feature dimensions as small as 10 nanometers over areas encompassing billions of identical devices.
Relying on top-down and bottom-up nanoscale processes including nanoimprint and sub-wavelength lithography, directed self-assembly and additive driven assembly methodologies, future industrialization of this technology naturally requires scaling system properties while retaining the collective properties of the nanoscopic elements over macroscale dimensions. Meeting this challenge is a key to high-rate manufacturing of nano-enabled products and for establishing viable industrial-scale manufacturing platforms for continuous large-area roll-to-roll and print processing.
