Mesh pattern makes rigid ITO electrodes bendable, attractive for use in flexible electronic devices

A research team at Waseda University has developed indium tin oxide (ITO) electrodes with a new mesh pattern which has high potential for use in flexible electronic devices in the future. Their study was published in Scientific Reports on February 12, 2018.

Though consideration from both electrical and optical perspectives will be necessary for further improvement in flexibility, Professor Jun Mizuno says, “Because the mesh patterning is useful to increase flexibility of metal oxides regardless of their rigidity, mesh-patterned ITO electrodes are attractive for use in practical flexible electronic devices in the future.”
