Flexible displays use up to 90 percent less materials by volume than conventional displays. The unbreakable displays were created by the FDC and HP using self-aligned imprint lithography (SAIL), a proprietary technology of HP Labs. SAIL is considered “self aligned” because the patterning information is imprinted on the substrate in such a way that perfect alignment is maintained regardless of process-induced distortion. SAIL enables the roll-to-roll printing manufacturing of the flexible displays.
It is expected that the flexible display market is to grow from $80 million in 2007 to $2.8 billion by 2013.
