23_18/2011Touchless Interfaces: An All-Printed Ferroelectric Active Matrix Sensor Network Based on Only Five Functional Materials Forming a Touchless Control Interface (Adv. Mater. 18/2011)

Macroelectronic components combining different classes of devices often suffer from the high complexity and costs of their manufacturing process. The printing of an active-matrix sensor network using only five functional inks is demonstrated on p. 2069 by Barbara Stadlober and co-workers. The result is an all-printed monolithically integrated touchless input interface, including ferroelectric sensor pixels, organic transistors for impedance matching, and an electrochromic display. Cover design by Georg Wieser, WIEsuell-3D Animation & Multimedia, Linz, Austria.
