This talk will describe roll-to-roll patterning based fabrication technologies developed at the University of Michigan and their applications. These processes are developed to address the need for large area, scalable manufacturing of photonic elements for display and solar cell applications, including wire grid polarizers and plasmonic color filters to increase the efficiency of LCD displays; and metallic wire grid transparent conductors as well as a new coating process for organic polymer solar cells that can produce optimized donor/acceptor nanodomains and improve the power conversion efficiency.
