An active matrix backplane based on solution-processed organic thin-film transistors (OTFTs) has been developed for flexible displays having multiphoton organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). The OTFT device has a bottom-gate/bottom-contact type structure consisting of a polyethylene naphthalate-based flexible substrate covered with patterned gate electrodes and a gate dielectric of UV-cured cardo-polymer. Teflon AF was used for a hydrophobic bank structure that defines active regions of the OTFTs, and the organic semiconductor was coated by solution shearing. The OTFT backplane fabricated here had 384 × 128 pixels at a resolution of 300 dpi; images and video were successfully displayed on the resulting flexible multiphoton-emission OLED display.
