Developing Flexible Electronic Technology
Flexible electronic technology is an emerging science and technology. Due to its unique flexibility and scalability, flexible electronic technology has broad application prospects in many aspects.
In the eyes of people, organic materials (such as plastics) are good insulators, and few people think that plastics can also conduct electricity. In recent years, due to new breakthroughs in the study of conductive polymers, organic materials can be changed from conventional insulators to conductive semiconductors, and flexible electrons have emerged. The development of modern chemistry and other technologies has facilitated the development of disciplines such as flexible electronics. Key to flexible electronics manufacturing includes manufacturing processes, substrates and materials, the main of which is Micro and Nanopatterning, involving multidisciplinary research in mechanics, materials, physics, chemistry and electronics.
Flexible electronic products have broad application prospects in the information, energy, medical and defense industries with their unique flexibility/ductility and efficient, low-cost manufacturing processes, such as flexible electronic displays, organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) and printing. Radio Frequency Identification (RFID). Thin film solar panels, electronic newspapers and skin patches/artificial muscles.
In addition to integrated electronic circuits, electronic components, materials, flat panel displays and nanotechnology, flexible electronics can also assist traditional industries such as semiconductors, packaging and testing, materials, chemicals, printed circuit boards and display panels. The transformation of industries such as plastics, printing, chemicals and metal materials will add value to the industry. Therefore, the development of flexible electronic technology will bring revolutionary changes to industrial structure and human life.
