Applied Materials is developing a process that could print flexible transistor arrays that perform just as well as those on rigid substrates.

Applied Materials is developing a machine that performs chemical vapor deposition on a range of substrates, from films of stainless steel to the plastics being used by Hewlett-Packard and Phicot. The leader of research on the project, Neil Morrison, says the tool can produce transistor arrays that are "good enough for an e-book reader." The company is testing the roll-to-roll machine with customers it won't disclose, and says it expects to begin selling the equipment to manufacturers in three to five years.
