The goal of this project is to demonstrate proof-of-concept process integration and testing capabilities that will enable the realization of a metal-insulator-metal (MIM) diode-based display pixel switch employing discrete MIM diodes fabricated with amorphous metal electrodes. This effort supports the team’s vision for replacing the thin-film transistor (TFT) in backplane switching technology with a MIM diode that supports a 3x improvement in display backplane manufacturing line throughput and capacity for current e-ink, liquid crystal, LED, organic LED (OLED) and 3D displays. In addition, the MIM diode’s physical flexibility offers the potential to uniquely enable the coming generation of flexible OLED-based displays that promises to redefine mobile electronic communications, entertainment, and computing devices.

Amorphyx plans to initiate work with a leader in the flexible display industry with the goal of establishing a joint venture for the design and production of flexible displays in Oregon.
