In this paper, the authors have developed an a-Si TFT process on clear plastic substrates which allows direct transfer of industry a-Si TFT process on glass to plastic substrate for flexible electronics applications. The high temperature process increases the reliability of the a-Si TFT's, which is critical for OLED's where one TFT must operate in a DC condition
