23_16/2013Stretchable Electronics: Load-Controlled Roll Transfer of Oxide Transistors for Stretchable Electronics (Adv. Funct. Mater. 16/2013)

A stretchable and transparent indium-galliumzinc-oxide (IGZO) thin-film transistor (TFT) with high electrical performance and scalability is reported by Jae-Hyun Kim, Jong-Hyun Ahn, and co-workers on page 2024. A load-controlled roll transfer method is realized for fully automated and scalable transfer of the IGZO TFTs from a rigid substrate to an elastomeric substrate. The IGZO TFTs exhibit stable electrical performance without deformation or breakage when stretched and twisted, demonstrating the potentiality of the load-controlled roll transfer in stretchable electronics.
