Printed flexible and transparent electronics: enhancing low-temperature processed metal oxides with 0D and 1D nanomaterials

Metal oxides have broad multifunctionality and important applications to energy, sensing, and information display. Printed electronics have recently adopted metal oxides to push the limits of performance and stability for flexible thin film systems. However, a grand challenge in this field is to achieve these properties while balancing the thermal budget, which critically determines the applicability, flexibility, and cost of these systems. This paper presents a focused review of printed metal oxide electronics, highlighting our recent work developing high-performance, printed transistors processed at low temperatures via aqueous precursor chemistries, nanomaterial hybrid inks, and ultraviolet annealing. These results reveal the potential for printing uniquely high-performance active devices (electronic mobility >10 cm(2) V-1 s(-1)) but also illustrates the utility of nanocomposites that integrate nanomaterials within a metal oxide matrix for improving device performance.
