  • Patent number: 10796971
    Abstract: A method of making a repaired electrical connection structure comprises providing a substrate having first and second contact pads electrically connected in parallel, providing first and second functionally identical components, disposing a first adhesive layer on the substrate, transferring the first component onto the first adhesive layer, electrically connecting the first component to the first contact pad, testing the first component to determine if the first component is a faulty component and, if the first component is a faulty component, disposing a second adhesive layer on the substrate and transferring the second component onto the second adhesive layer, and electrically connecting the second component to the second contact pad. The first and second adhesive layers can be unpatterned or patterned and the first and second components can be electrically connected to the first and second contact pads, respectively, with connection posts or photolithographically defined electrodes.

  • Patent number: 10749093
    Abstract: A transfer print structure comprises a destination substrate having a substrate surface and one or more substrate conductors disposed on or in the destination substrate. One or more interconnect structures are disposed on and protrude from the destination substrate in a direction orthogonal to the substrate surface. Each interconnect structure comprises one or more notches, each notch having an opening on an edge of the interconnect structure and extending at least partially through the interconnect structure in a direction parallel to the substrate surface from the edge and a notch conductor disposed at least partially in the notch and electrically connected to one of the substrate conductors. In some embodiments, an electronic component comprising connection posts is transfer printed into electrical contact with a corresponding notch conductor by laterally moving the electronic component over the substrate surface to electrically contact the connection post to the notch conductor.

  • Publication number: 20200214141
    Abstract: An example of a method of making a printed structure comprises providing a destination substrate, contact pads disposed on the destination substrate, and a layer of adhesive disposed on the destination substrate. A stamp with a component adhered to the stamp is provided. The component comprises a stamp side in contact with the stamp and a post side opposite the stamp side, a circuit, and connection posts extending from the post side. Each of the connection posts is electrically connected to the circuit. The component is pressed into contact with the adhesive layer to adhere the component to the destination substrate and to form a printed structure having a volume defined between the component and the destination substrate. The stamp is removed and the printed structure is processed to fill or reduce the volume.

  • Patent number: 10690920
    Abstract: A transparent display comprises an at least partially transparent display substrate having a display area and a bezel area adjacent to each of at least one corresponding side of the display area. Light-controlling elements are disposed in, on, or over the display substrate in the display area. Display wires are disposed in, on, or over the display substrate in the display area and are electrically connected to the light-controlling elements. Bezel wires are disposed in, on, or over the display substrate in the bezel area, the bezel wires electrically connected to respective ones of the display wires. The transparent display has a bezel transparency that varies over the bezel area. Bezel wires can be spaced apart by a bezel wire spacing that is greater than a width of the bezel wires. A display wire can be a mesh wire or have a depth greater than a width.

  • Publication number: 20200168760
    Abstract: A transfer-printable (e.g., micro-transfer-printable) device source wafer comprises a growth substrate comprising a growth material, a plurality of device structures comprising one or more device materials different from the growth material, the device structures disposed on and laterally spaced apart over the growth substrate, each device structure comprising a device, and a patterned dissociation interface disposed between each device structure of the plurality of device structures and the growth substrate. The growth material is more transparent to a desired frequency of electromagnetic radiation than at least one of the one or more device materials. The patterned dissociation interface has one or more areas of relatively greater adhesion each defining an anchor between the growth substrate and a device structure of the plurality of device structures and one or more dissociated areas of relatively lesser adhesion between the growth substrate and the device structure of the plurality of device structures.

  • Patent number: 10600671
    Abstract: In certain embodiments, a method of making a semiconductor structure suitable for transfer printing (e.g., micro-transfer printing) includes providing a support substrate and disposing and processing one or more semiconductor layers on the support substrate to make a completed semiconductor device. A patterned release layer and, optionally, a capping layer are disposed on or over the completed semiconductor device and the patterned release layer or capping layer, if present, are bonded to a handle substrate with a bonding layer. The support substrate is removed to expose the completed semiconductor device and, in some embodiments, a portion of the patterned release layer. In some embodiments, an entry path is formed to expose a portion of the patterned release layer. In some embodiments, the release layer is etched and the completed semiconductor devices transfer printed (e.g., micro-transfer printed) from the handle substrate to a destination substrate.

  • Publication number: 20200052164
    Abstract: A method of making a flexible device comprises providing a rigid substrate and a flexible substrate, disposing a layer of print adhesive on the rigid substrate, and micro-transfer printing micro-devices onto the print adhesive. Each of the micro-devices comprises a micro-device substrate separate, independent, and distinct from the rigid substrate and from the flexible substrate. A bonding layer is provided to bond the flexible substrate to the micro-devices such that (i) the bonding layer is disposed between the flexible substrate and the micro-devices and (ii) the micro-devices are disposed between the rigid substrate and the flexible substrate (e.g., forming a device structure). The flexible substrate is separated from the rigid substrate so that the micro-devices remain bonded to the flexible substrate providing a flexible device. The micro-devices can comprise at least a portion of a micro-device tether.
