Flexible Glass Technology Means Lighter, Brighter Displays

The news has been buzzing with Sony's latest rollable OLED screen (note: Sony does not specify that it uses this particular technology in its organic thin-film transisters product).

It's an impressive sight, but how does it work? Corning has been developing flexible substrates on which electronics can be printed. Amazingly, Corning's latest substrate is made from very pure glass (and it doesn't shatter!).
According to Carl Taussig, director of the Information Surfaces Lab at Hewlett-Packard Labs in Palo Alto, California, "Glass is a great surface for building thin-film devices on." Water can't seep into glass unlike its plastic counterparts due to glass's impermeability -- meaning that the electronics can last longer. Glass is also smoother and can therefore accommodate the building of perfectly structured electronics. Finally, glass can survive higher temperatures than plastics, meaning the electronics can be made at higher temperatures which results in faster switching electronics, producing a crisper display.
