ISORG and Plastic Logic co-develop the worlds first image sensor on plastic
The collaboration is based on the deposition of organic printed photodetectors (OPD),pioneered by ISORG, onto a plastic organic thin-film transistor (OTFT) backplane, developed by the technology leader, Plastic Logic, to create a flexible sensor with a 4x4 cm active area,375um pitch (175um pixel size with 200um spacing) and 94 x 95 = 8 930 pixel resolution.
The backplane design, production process and materials were optimised for the applicationby Plastic Logic to meet ISORG's requirements. The result, a flexible, transmissivebackplane, represents a significant breakthrough in the manufacture of new large area imagesensors and demonstrates the potential use of Plastic Logic's unique flexible transistortechnology to also move beyond plastic displays.
