Paintable Displays Robert Hatfield Material Science 3344 Spring 2006
Process to make a display • Alignment layer attached to substrate. • Polymer liquid “painted” on. • Masked grid laid on top • First UV treatment • Mask removed • Second UV treatment • Polarizing Coat Applied
Future Uses • No size limit • No need for a flat surface • Attach to nearly any substrate • Wallpaper, clothes, newspapers, etc.
Uses only one substrate Ultra thin Can be flexible Ultra light Cheaper than current LCD Advantages
