Abstract

Much of the mechanical strain in semiconductor devices can be relieved when they are made on compliant substrates. We demonstrate this strain relief with amorphous silicon thin-film transistors made on 25-μm thick polyimide foil, which can be bent to radii of curvature R down to 0.5 mm without substantial change in electrical characteristics.
