Large Area, Rubber Stamped Plastic Circuits for Electronic Paper

Abstract

This paper illustrates the use of a high resolution form of rubber stamping, known as microcontact printing (μCP), for patterning plastic active matrix drive circuitry designed for electronic paper. The high resolution (π1 [.mu]m) of the printed elements, the large area coverage (π1 sq. ft.) and the good electrical performance of these systems suggest that the methods, materials and processing sequences may be attractive for realistic applications of plastic electronics.
