Abstract
Ultra-thin flexible glass opens up new fields of applications for high-end electronics. It paves the way for the development of thin, light, robust, curved, and conformable devices. With bend ability similar to other web materials, flexible glass excels in dimensional stability, thermal capability and chemical compatibility. Roll-to-roll processing using PVD deposition would allow efficient low-cost production of functional layers and layer stacks on flexible glass. The development of thin-film coating processes for ultra-thin glass and its integration into organic and hybrid electronic devices are current research topics with the highest priority. In this context we present research and development of indium tin oxide thin-films coated in roll-to-roll mode for ultra-thin flexible glass. Through a steady development of those processes it would be possible to enhance ultra-thin glass for application in advanced electronic devices.
