Abstract
Having realized the bottlenecks in electronic systems-on-film manufacturing, Omega Optics and the University of Texas at Austin propose to develop a low-cost, high rate, roll-to-roll manufacturing process for hybrid electronic systems on flexible substrates. Roll-to-roll fabrication of hybrid systems enables the utilization of the combined advantages of organic, inorganic and other material systems on the same substrate in addition to reducing the production cost. In this program, inorganic and organic material inks will be developed and characterized for our specific processes. In our proposed technique, the high rate manufacturing comes from the utilization of a computer controlled multi-stage digital ink-jet printer capable of printing different materials simultaneously. In order to maintain high alignment accuracy of
