Title (EN) ELECTRONIC DEVICES WITH FLEXIBLE DISPLAYS
(FR) DISPOSITIFS ÉLECTRONIQUES DOTÉS D'ÉCRANS FLEXIBLES
Abstract:
(EN) An electronic device may have a flexible portion that allows the device to be folded. The device may have a flexible display. The flexible display may have a flexible display layer, a cover layer, a touch sensor interposed between the flexible display layer and the cover layer, a support layer, and a polarizer layer. The polarizer layer may be interposed between the touch sensor and the flexible display or between the touch sensor and the cover layer. The touch sensor may include optically clear adhesive that is flexible and facilitates bending of the display. The optically clear adhesive may include additives such as water vapor penetration reducing additive, anticorrosion additive, ultraviolet-light blocking additive, and index-of -refraction adjustment additive. The support layer may be formed from shape memory alloy or amorphous metal and may have openings to facilitate bending.
(FR) Dans cette invention, un dispositif électronique peut avoir une partie flexible qui permet de le plier. Le dispositif peut avoir un écran flexible. L'écran flexible peut comporter une couche d'affichage flexible, une couche de revêtement, un capteur tactile intercalé entre la couche d'affichage flexible et la couche de revêtement, une couche de support et une couche de polarisation. La couche de polarisation peut être placée entre le capteur tactile et l'écran flexible, ou entre le capteur tactile et la couche de revêtement. Le capteur tactile peut comprendre un adhésif optiquement transparent qui est flexible et qui facilite le pliage de l'écran. L'adhésif optiquement transparent peut inclure des additifs tels qu'un additif réduisant la pénétration de la vapeur d'eau, un additif anticorrosion, un additif bloquant les rayons ultraviolets et un additif d'ajustement d'indice de réfraction. La couche de support peut être composée d'un alliage à mémoire de forme ou d'un métal amorphe, et peut comporter des ouvertures pour faciliter le pliage.
