Flexible image sensor on plastic – a world's first by ISORG and Plastic Logic
ISORG and Plastic Logic have co-developed the first conformable organic image sensor on plastic. The sensors rely on the deposition of organic printed photodetectors (OPD) pioneered by ISORG, onto a plastic organic thin-film transistor (OTFT) backplane developed by Plastic Logic.

The flexible sensor has a 4x4 cm active area, 375um pitch (175um pixel size with 200um spacing) and a 94x95 pixel resolution.

The backplane design, production process and materials were optimised for the application by Plastic Logic to meet ISORG’s requirements. The result, a flexible, transmissive backplane, represents a significant breakthrough in the manufacture of new large area image sensors. The flexible thin-film sensor opens up the possibilities for a range of new applications, based around digital image sensing, including smart packaging and sensors for medical equipment, security and mobile commerce, or to enable scanning surfaces and 3D interactive user interfaces.
