The origins of flexible displays can be traced back to the ’70s. Though there have been many breakthroughs since then, it was only recently that this technology began to see consumer adoption for mass production.

Currently, 90% of displays sold today are made with glass. These designs are based on liquid crystal displays (LCD). Flexible displays are often based on organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology, which is fundamentally different than LCD.

So, how does this technology flex and fold? Below, we explore how to create flexible displays using OLED over LCD.

According to ScienceDirect, “Photopolymerization is a technique that uses light (visible or ultraviolet) to initiate and propagate a reaction to form a linear or cross-linked polymer structure.”

It’s a significant area of focus for researchers and developers, as it allow for production of materials with customized properties.

In microelectronics, for example, scientists are able to manipulate the physical properties of polymer networks to improve adhesion and solvent resistance by exposing the material to light sources.

If you think that’s impressive, continue reading for three other interesting photopolymerization applications.
