Recent Patent Activities in Flexible Transparent Conductive Substrate Technology
Volume 11, Issue 3

Tianran Yan and Stephen B. Maebius

One of the key materials used in displays are transparent, conductive films. For rigid displays, a material called indium tin oxide (“ITO”) is generally used to make transparent, conductive films. The commercialization of flexible displays requires components that are flexible and moldable. There are physical limitations on the use of ITO films in flexible displays. In recent years, substantial capital has been devoted to developing transparent, conductive electrodes based on nanomaterials that are more flexible than ITO. In this article, patent lawyers Tianran Yan and Stephen Maebius survey recent trends in patenting of these nanomaterial-based films.
