HP Advantage: Created using amorphous multi-component oxides
The rapid evolution of the field of transparent electronics may hold the key to new industries and many new, more effective or less costly consumer products. Uses could range from transparent displays in the windshield of an automobile to cell phones, televisions, copiers, "smart" glass, or even games and toys. Transparent transistors can be created using new materials called amorphous heavy-metal cation multi-component oxides. The electronic capabilities of these materials compare with organic and polymer materials that are the basis of millions of dollars of research development each year.
