Developing Tomorrow's Technology Today

With the goal to realize high-performance electronic systems on flexible platform this group pursuits design and development of devices, circuits and very large scale integrated systems on stainless steel foil substrate mainly employing polysilicon Thin Film Transistor (TFT) technology. In contrast with plastic substrates, metal foils can withstand high-temperature steps such as thermal oxide growth, thermal dopant activation, silicidation etc. Furthermore, the superior dimensional stability of metal foil substrates permits the implementation of rather small features (<1┬Ám) over a large area. This makes the development of highly integrated, high performance CMOS electronics on flexible, large area platform possible. Our efforts cover the following aspects:
