Flexible Glass: Alternative to Plastic

Most display screens used in televisions, computers and portable electronics are liquid crystal displays (LCDs), controlled by thin-film silicon transistor arrays built on rigid glass backplanes. With today's emerging technology, the dominance of LCDs may be challenged for custom display projects.   Today, glass manufacturer Corning, is testing a flexible glass substrate for printed electronics that will offer the performance of glass with the flexibility of plastic. The emergence of new display technology is pushing the need to meet consumer requirements of lighter, more durable and energy efficient devices.   Corning's flexibile display glass More…
