About This Webinar
Corning flexible glass substrates.This webinar will encourage activity in the growing field of flexible glass, including the design and performance of electronic and optoelectronic devices for thin, lightweight, and flexible or curved applications. Presenter Sean Garner will discuss the properties of flexible glass — including flexible Corning Willow Glass — and provide examples of emerging applications, device designs, and fabrication processes.

The unique attributes of flexible glass, at thicknesses ≤200 µm, make it suitable for applications that are not possible or practical with other substrate materials. Compared to alternatives, glass substrates offer advantages of dimensional and thermal stability, hermeticity, optical performance, and surface quality. Additionally, a disruptive ecosystem, including high-throughput roll-to-roll manufacturing, is emerging to specifically process and integrate flexible glass devices at a manufacturing scale.
