Abstract: Liquid crystal displays have been on the market for decades, starting out with small portable appliances, like watches in the 80's, growing up to laptop and computer displays, and now conquering the home entertainment sector with high definition television sets. Nevertheless this mature technology is under permanent pressure to beat all other emerging technology by price, reliability and quality. The most costly component of the display is the multi-layer substrates. Standard commercially available displays are glass based but there is a growing interest in plastic displays. Plastic as a substrate would not only offer the consumer a more robust appliance but could also reduce production cost by allowing roll to roll processing on top of printing processes already established for glass substrates.
