Flexible Electronics: Rollable Transparent Glass-Fabric Reinforced Composite Substrate for Flexible Devices (Adv. Mater. 40/2010)
A rollable transparent glass-fabric reinforced composite film (GFRHybrimer) with potential for use as a substrate in flexible devices is reported on p. 4510 by Byeong-Soo Bae and co-workers. The GFRHybrimer film is fabricated by impregnating woven glass-fabric with a photocurable sol-gel hybrid material (Hybrimer). This process imparts a low coefficient of thermal expansion to the composite film. High optical transparency can be achieved by precise matching of the refractive index.
