Optically transparent and flexible electronic circuits and displays are attractive for next-generation visual technologies, including windshield displays, head-mounted displays, and transparent screen monitors. Here we report on the fabrication of transparent transistors and circuits based on the combination of nanoscopic dielectrics and organic, inorganic, or hybrid semiconductors. Furthermore, the first demonstration of a transparent and flexible AMOLED display driven solely by In2O3 nanowire transistors (NWTs) is reported. The display region exhibits an optical transmittance of ∼35% and a green peak luminance of ∼300 cd/m 2. These results indicate that NWT-based drive circuits are attractive for fully transparent display technologies.
