A 5-in. QVGA flexible AMOLED display driven by OTFTs has been fabricated at a low temperature of 130°C. A polyethylene naphthalate film was used as the flexible substrate and an olefin polymer was used as the gate insulator for the OTFT. This layer was formed by spin-coating and baking at 130°C. Pentacene was used as the organic semiconductor layer. The OTFT performance to drive the flexible display with QVGA pixels in terms of current on/off ratio, carrier mobility, and spatial uniformity on the backplane have been obtained. Phosphorescent and fluorescent OLEDs were used as light-emitting devices on a flexible display. Those layers were formed by vacuum deposition. After the flexible display was fabricated, a clear and uniform moving image was obtained on the display. The display also showed a stable moving image even when it was bent.
