Graphene-Enabled Paper Makes for Flexible Display

Graphene-Enabled Paper Makes for Flexible Display

Graphene has been building quite a reputation for itself in flexible displays . Among the ways graphene has been used in this field is as an alternative to the relatively scarce indium tin oxide (ITO) , a transparent conductor that controls display pixels. Graphene has also been used in a display’s pixel electronics, or backplane, where a solution-processed graphene is used as an electrode . Now researchers at Bilkent University in Ankara, Turkey, have demonstrated that an ordinary sheet of paper that is sandwiched between two films of multilayer graphene can act as a rudimentary flexible electronic display. In an interview with Nature Photonics , the corresponding author, Coskun Kocabas, says that this system could serve as a framework for turning ordinary printing paper into an optoelectronic display. Kocabas explained: We would like to fabricate a display device that ca...
