Encapsulation of flexible electronics: alternatives to multilayers
IDTechEx has been following closely the space for flexible encapsulation and current trends show case that films or in-line deposition based on multi layers (alternating layers of organic and inorganic materials, also known as dyads) is the preferred technology. Alternatives have also been in development too though, so we will briefly analyze some of the main candidates that could potentially displace multilayer approaches: flexible glass, single layer approaches and atomic layer deposition are the technologies examined in this article.

Beneq and Mordovia State University open joint ALD laboratory
Mordovia State University officially opened a laboratory to research and study thin-film technologies (100 nm and less) using atomic layer deposition (ALD) with Beneq's TFS 200 equipment.
9 Aug 2013
Atomic layer deposition (ALD) has the potential to provide effective moisture barrier at low cost. Beneq is the leading the development of roll-to-roll ALD, which is more suitable for flexible susbtrates. However, the technology is not mature yet.
