We bring game-changing innovation to liquid crystal optics and displays

Home  >  Our Story

Driven by innovation from the start

With its origins in the University of Cambridge’s Cavendish Laboratory, FlexEnable’s technology began with a focus on replacing silicon on glass in large-area electronics with organic thin-film transistors (OTFTs) on flexible substrates. These capabilities have grown to include not only the organic materials and manufacturing processes, but also the manufacture of complete liquid crystal (LC) optoelectronic modules which are flexible, ultra-thin, ultra-light and unbreakable. Our talented and experienced team of flexible electronics engineers has combined over 1000 engineering years invested in core technology and IP. Today FlexEnable® has over 500 patents and patent applications globally for OTFT and LC cell materials, processes and architectures that are already redefining where active surfaces are used in our lives.

Bringing surfaces to life

We envisage a world where electronics are seamlessly integrated into the surfaces around us, bringing astonishing optical properties to devices. Uniquely enabled by our flexible active film technology, we make large area optoelectronics, thinner and lighter than ever before, conformed to the real-world curves all around us.

Many of the advantages of FlexEnable’s award-winning flexible electronics technology derive from its uniquely low temperature manufacturing process, bringing significant process simplicity, cost and sustainability advantages compared to other approaches. This is one reason why FlexEnable® is the only company to have industrialised flexible organic electronics with high yield and reliability, that is now being adopted by multiple display makers for production scale-up.
