The novel emerging field of flexible and printed electronics have attracted increased attention because of its potential to enable low-cost and high-throughput manufacturing of electronics on cheap plastic substrates for various applications including photovoltaics. However, this segment is still far away from commercialization because state of the art materials and manufacturing steps are not compatible with thermally sensitive flexible materials. Our team has recently reported on novel atmospheric plasmas compatible with flexible materials with promising potential for various novel oxidative and reduction processes useful in future technologies. However, the mechanisms of the plasma processes and their potential for new fabrication steps for next-generation nanostructured thin films in flexible and printed electronics are not adequate or missing.
