2012 2022 barrier films for flexible electronics Document Transcript

  • 1. 2012-2022 Barrier Films for Flexible ElectronicsPrinted and thin film transistor circuits will become a $3.5 billion market in 10 years, from just $2 millionAlthough it is possible to print many different kinds of electronic displays, in order for them to becommercially successful, they must be robust enough to survive for the necessary time and conditionsrequired of the display. This condition has been a limitation of many printable electronic displays.Beyond printability and functionality, one of the most important requirements is encapsulation. Many ofthe materials used in printed electronic displays are chemically sensitive, and will react with manyenvironmental components.This highly targeted report from IDTechEx technology analyst Dr Harry Zervos gives an in-depth reviewof the issues, as well as forecasts for OLEDs and OPV, in order to understand the influence that thedevelopment of flexible barriers will have on the mass deployment and adoption of flexible electronicsand photovoltaics.A large opportunity lies in the development of devices in a flexible form factor, allowing them to bemore robust, lightweight and versatile in their use.Explore Comprehensive list of Tables & Figures available in the report Barrier Films MarketReport Details:Published: March 2012No. of Pages: 109Price: Single User License – US$3995However, many of the materials used in OLED displays and organic photovoltaics are sensitive to theenvironment, limiting their lifetime. These materials can be protected using substrates and barriers suchas glass and metal, but this results in a rigid device and does not satisfy the applications demandingflexible devices. Plastic substrates and transparent flexible encapsulation barriers can be used, but theseoffer little protection to oxygen and water, resulting in the devices rapidly degrading.In order to achieve device lifetimes of tens of thousands of hours, water vapor transmission rates(WVTR) must be 10-6 g/m2/day, and oxygen transmission rates (OTR) must be < 10-3 cm3/m2/day. ForOrganic Photovoltaics, the required WVTR is not as stringent as OLEDs require but is still very high at alevel of 10-5 g/m2/day. These transmission rates are several orders of magnitude smaller than what ispossible using any plastic substrate, and they can also be several orders of magnitude smaller than whatcan be measured using common equipment designed for this purpose. For these (and other) reasons,there has been intense interest in developing transparent barrier materials with much lowerpermeabilities.Few Major points covered in Table of Contents
