Tin doped indium oxide (ITO) has been directly deposited onto a variety of flexible materials by a reactive sputtering technique that utilises a remotely generated, high density plasma. This technique, known as high target utilisation sputtering (HiTUS), allows for the high rate deposition of good quality ITO films onto polymeric materials with no substrate heating or post deposition annealing. Coatings with a resistivity of 3.8 ×10−4 Ωcm and an average visible transmission of greater than 90% have been deposited onto PEN and PET substrate materials at a deposition rate of 70 nm/min. The electrical and optical properties are retained when the coatings are flexed through a 1.0 cm bend radius, making them of interest for flexible display applications.
