Researchers Print Transistors on 2D Thin-Film Materials #EETimes

While video display manufacturers are furiously trying to devise a practical means to manufacture thin-film transistors (TFTs) with the goal of reducing the cost of monitors, TVs, smartphone screens, and the like, a group of researchers in Ireland have just announced a printing process for creating two-dimensional transistors on thin-film materials that could make displays so cheap that they would be literally disposable. A possible application might be packaging for perishables (e.g., a container of yogurt) that displays an expiration-date countdown. Or white wine labels that alert you when the contents are the optimum temperature for drinking. Or imagine if the wrapping for your 7-Eleven breakfast burrito could alert you when your bus or your Lyft is about to arrive. AMBER researchers made a major breakthrough in smart printed electronics.
