Graphene Forges on to the Fold

Posted October 16, 2014 12:00 AM by Engineering360 eNewsletter

In what they're calling a method that will pave the way for the future of fully foldable displays, scientists from the University of Cambridge Graphene Centre and the UK-based company Plastic Logic have developed a flexible screen that uses graphene in the mix. The display uses a small amount of graphene sandwiched between flexible layers of polymer, as seen in this video. The backplane uses an emulsion-processed graphene electrode. The combination promises to deliver a more efficient and robust alternative to glass displays.
