When devices are fabricated on thin foil substrates, any mismatch strain in the device structure makes the work piece curve. Any change of the radius of curvature produces a change in the size of the work piece, and thereby misalignment between individual device layers. To achieve tight tolerances, changes of curvature must be minimized throughout the fabrication process. Amorphous silicon thin-film transistors and solar cells respond differently to externally applied tensile strain. The… CONTINUE READING
