Epitaxial Ferroelectric On Flexible Substrate

Recent trends in electronics allude to a human-centric computing paradigm where high performance electronic devices will have to work on unusual surfaces with unconventional form factors. A key component of such a computer is a memory device for which Ferroelectric (FE) materials have long been considered as an ideal candidate. However, integration of the best quality FE films on flexible substrates has remained a daunting challenge, severely limiting the performance that can be achieved in these devices. Motivated by this challenge, UC Berkeley researchers have developed a pathway for integrating epitaxial quality, FE memory devices onto flexible substrates by providing an epitaxially grown ferroelectric stack on a flexible substrate that exhibits high performance characteristics such as high polarization, fast switching and low power operation for memory devices.

Integrated Flexible Filter Photodiode Array For RGB Detection

Inorganic-semiconductor-based photodiodes (PD) have a broadband photoresponse in the visible range.  There are a few approaches to achieve color images with broadband PDs.  The most common one involves the use of a color filter array (CFA) placed over the sensor. Bayer filter, a mosaic of red (R), green (G) and blue (B) filters is the most common color filter array.  In the contrast to inorganic PDs, the main approach to achieve color images with organic photodiodes (OPD) is to narrow the spectral selectivity of the pixels by tuning the absorption spectrum of the photoactive layer.   UC Berkeley researchers have developed an integrated flexible filter photodiode array for RGB detection, using a novel pixel concept and a new filter-substrate-OPD configuration to produce an all-printed full-color OPD imager.  In this approach both sides of flexible substrates are used to combine a broadband OPD and two wide range absorbing filters.  The filter-substrate-OPD configuration utilizes the substrate as a physical separator between the single-photoactive layer OPD array and the filters.   Another feature of current designs of RGB photodiodes is that the filters can be located above the photodiodes, deposited from the same side of the substrate as the photodiode or a completely separate system.  For example, in inorganic photodioes the filters are typically located over the photodiodes.  In organic photodiodes the filters are deposited from the same side of the substrate as the photodiode (e.g., in between the photodiode and the substrate) or a completely separate system.
