Flexible dot-matrix display manufacture by offset lithography

Novel thermochromic graphic displays manufactured by printing thermochromic ink films in conjunction with conductive lithographic films (CLFs) are presented. Work in formulating lithographic printing inks is described. The properties of the deposited ink films and demonstration display structures employing these materials are discussed. These low-cost printed structures could be incorporated in the manufacture of electronic systems with integrated printed power sources affording environmental benefits when compared with conventional manufacturing techniques.
