Industry outlook

Thinfilm has been actively evaluating strategic alternatives to find new and interesting applications for the San-Jose-based roll-to-roll printed dopant polysilicon (PDPS) line and continues to pursue paths to maximise the value of the assets and technology. The factory’s combination of capabilities, including roll-based production, robust metal foil substrate handling, CMOS TFT production, materials and process knowhow, and print expertise, position it to effectively address market needs for R&D, initial production, and scale-up activities necessary between basic research and prototyping at university facilities and large-scale contract manufacturing. Beyond the product categories prioritised by Thinfilm, opportunities exist to utilise the factory’s unique technology in flexible large-area electronics applications, flexible sensors, novel energy conversion devices, thin and flexible batteries, displays and barriers.
