Ultrathin Flexible Glass: Potentials and Challenges for Vacuum Thin Film Coating

Nicolas Schiller
Fraunhofer FEP

Ultrathin flexible glass is a great material for very interesting applications. However, for many applications vacuum thin film coating is necessary. The paper will review the current technology status and will present current developments in r2r vacuum thin film coating, film handling, flash lamp annealing. Applications for sensors and displays will be discussed. A r2r- pilot coater for flexible glass will be presented.
