Transparent Conductive Films for Flexible Electronics 2010-2020
This report focuses on the requirements and achievements to date on the topic of flexible transparent conductors, where high transparency and high conductivity are required. Worldwide research and design efforts are presented, both from research institutes and companies that are developing the necessary materials and processes. Several technical solutions available are compared, and forecasts are given for the next 10 years.

The importance of Transparent Conductive Films (TCF)
Increasingly more and more flexible devices are required, from flexible displays for e-readers, OLEDs and other types to flexible photovoltaics and beyond. These devices require a conductor to close the layers of active materials, but that conductor needs to be transparent in applications such as displays and photovoltaics to allow light through. Today, transparent conductive oxides are widely used for rigid devices but these will become more expensive due to rare materials used, and are inadequate for most flexible electronics applications where they can easily crack under little strain. Alternatives are sought.

The main materials available for this purpose are:
Transparent conductive oxides (TCOs)
Organic materials, such as the most common PEDOT:PSS
Carbon nanotubes (CNT) and graphene

Each have trade-offs between conductivity, transmittance, and flexibility. Each can be patterned in different ways. While sputtering will remain an important and high-volume technology for coating of rigid substrates like glass, solution-based processes including printing and the use of organic and nanoparticle materials have already gained a lot of traction and are expected to dominate the market for the flexible applications within a few years. Significant new developments are being made with both the materials used and how they can be deposited. This report addresses the performance of the different options and profiles organizations around the world that are developing better solutions.
The biggest opportunity
In 2020, the biggest opportunity is for flexible OLEDs and flexible photovoltaics – however, both lack appropriate, low cost flexible barriers today, which delays the market penetration.

While ESD (electro static discharge) applications have moderate requirements concerning the properties of TCFs, demands in devices such as OLEDs are more complex. The main reason is that in that case, not only the standard properties as conductivity, transmittance and flexibility are important, but the interactions with other layers play an important role, namely charge carrier injection. In addition, for large area devices, homogeneity is more critical, especially when it comes to display and lighting applications. The human eye is more sensitive to changes in brightness than to changes in colour, and brightness of an light emitting device depends on the electrical conditions – voltage in the case of inorganic electroluminescence, current flow in the case of electrochromic and light-emitting semiconductors.

Market forecasts 2010-2020
Find that the market for TCFs will be $ 0.24 million in 2010 – mainly used in research and development and used in small quantities for commercial devices. By 2017 TCFs will become a billion dollar market for printed and potentially printed electronics, reaching $ 3.39 billion in 2020, mainly due to photovoltaics and OLED displays. The report gives forecasts by component for ten years.

Blue Star Glass Float Glass, Transparent Conductive Film Complete Line Of Industrial Test

Blue Star Glass Float Glass, Transparent Conductive Film Complete Line Of Industrial Test
From Hangzhou Blue Xingxincailiao Technology Co., Ltd., Weihai Blue Star Glass Co., Ltd., Zhejiang University Study and Research for Development, with completely independent intellectual property rights of float glass, transparent conductive film online recently in the company’s third-line float
The industrial testing, with industry conditions, and amorphous silicon thin film solar cells as a substrate of glass on the market, technologies and products to fill the domestic blank.
Preparation of transparent conductive film float glass line is the difference in float glass production line of tin bath and annealing kiln, using chemical vapor deposition coating process, the coating material in the gas jet to heat evenly, clean, High-speed pull attracted onto float glass surface, gaseous material under high temperature in the glass surface transport, decomposition, diffusion, deposition film, and film atomic composition of solid and glass combination covalent bond. Of the respective multi-layer barrier coating layer and the conductive layer to form a “glass / multi-layer barrier layer / multi-layer conductive film,” sandwich-type composite membrane, with the response regulator and regulator to adjust the haze of the film’s surface resistance and conductivity Haze.
Transparent conductive film glass float line can be a large area, the advantages of large-scale continuous stable production is very obvious, which is amorphous silicon thin film solar cell market has gradually become the mainstream of the important reasons. Float glass is a transparent conductive film glass substrate, coated with multilayer films and conductive features to achieve its stability, the largest production area of more than 5 square meters, is a monocrystalline silicon and polycrystalline silicon solar cells area several times.
Preparation of transparent conductive film float glass line is not only low cost, high chemical resistance, hardness, good stability and high conductivity, visible through the high surface roughness of the film can easily control the formation of a certain texture and haze, to meet the amorphous silicon thin film solar cells on thin film transparent electrode material requirements.
Currently use the float process to online production of SnO2 transparent conductive film glass company only Japan Plate Glass (NSG) Corporation, the United States AFG company, from the use of effect, the Japanese board Glass (NSG) the company’s product is better than the United States AFG companies that supply China production of amorphous silicon solar cell company price is very high. So Blue Star developed transparent conductive film glass production technology is of great significance, not only to make transparent conductive film SnO2 glass product localization, the formation of independent intellectual property rights, fill technology gaps, but also to the glass industry of solar energy quickly into the conductive substrate advanced in the world.
