Offset Liquid Embossing (OLE)

11.11.08

A method for additively printing nanoparticles and spin-on-glasses. OLE utilizes the transfer of patterned material from a polydimethylsiloxane surface of tuned wettability to a rigid or flexible substrate. Multiple layers can be aligned and printed without the need for planarization.
  • Amorphous

    An amorphous solid is a solid in which there is no long-range order of the positions of the atoms. Most classes of solid materials can be found or prepared in an amorphous form. For instance, common window glass is an amorphous ceramic, many polymers…

  • Thin-Film Transistor (TFT)

    A thin-film transistor (TFT) is a special kind of field-effect transistor made by depositing thin films of a semiconductor active layer as well as the dielectric layer and metallic contacts over a supporting substrate. A common substrate is glass, si…
