Researchers pushing work on flexible thin-film transistors

August 7, 2006 – Arrowhead Research Corp. and the U. of Florida say they will collaborate on development of flexible thin-film transistors (TFT) using carbon nanotubes, targeting applications in the flexible electronics market projected to top $20 billion by 2012, according to NanoMarkets forecasts.

Under the agreement, Arrowhead will provide $647,000 over a two-year period to develop optimized TFT devices and prototypes of TFT arrays, supporting research done by U. of Florida physics prof. Andrew Rinzler. Arrowhead also will have the first option to exclusively license and commercialize the technology.
