Solution-processed ‘real’ flexible ZnO thin-film transistors (TFTs) on plastic substrates are demonstrated on p. 4308 by Jooho Moon and co-workers. The flexible device shows exceptional and unprecedented stability against various stresses such as bending, rolling, wearing, and folding, exhibiting no degradation at tensile strains up to 6.35%. Such solution processable semiconductor devices can be used to realize transparent, flexible electronic devices.
