WILMINGTON, Del., Oct. 30 -- As part of a federally sponsored research and development initiative, DuPont and Sarnoff Corp. have agreed to develop new organic thin-film transistor (TFT) technology on plastic substrates.
Organic TFTs can offer advances in commercializing flexible display devices such as full-color, polymer-based active matrix organic light-emitting diode displays, Dupont said.
Lucent Technologies' Bell Labs will be subcontracted to develop a new class of organic TFT materials and design processes.
The research initiative will be sponsored as a National Institute of Standards and Technology's Advanced Technology Program for three years. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
