Triton Systems, Inc. and our partners, propose to develop a commercially viable process to print high speed thin film transistors (TFTs) onto large area flexible substrates. We propose to use a commercially available deposition system to deposit high mobility semiconductors onto flexible substrates. It uses an additive process with no masks or screens necessary. The printing technology is readily scalable to 1 x 3m sizes and larger. We also propose to increase the operating characteristics of the deposited TFTs (e.g. on/off ratio and mobilities). BENEFIT: This effort supports the Air Force’s desire for large area, flexible, high speed circuitry. The proposed effort will allow for such circuits to be produced quickly and economically at room temperature and pressures. A wide variety of military and commercial applications, such as wearable electronics, RFID, conformable sensors could benefit from the proposed effort.
