Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Electrophotographically patterned thin-film silicon transistors

Gleskova, H. and Könenkamp, R. and Wagner, S. and Shen, D. S. (1996) Electrophotographically patterned thin-film silicon transistors. IEEE Electron Device Letters, 17 (6). pp. 264-266.

Abstract

The authors made amorphous silicon thin-film transistors on glass foil using exclusively electrophotographic printing for pattern formation, contact hole opening, and device isolation. Toner masks were applied by feeding the glass substrate through a photocopier, or from laser-printed patterns on transfer paper. This all-printed patterning is an important step toward demonstrating a low-cost large-area circuit processing technology.
