Abstract

In display systems utilIzing liquid4illed thin panel cells (such as those used in liquid crystal or electrophoretic display systems), providing uniform spacing between the cell walls is very important. Cell thicknesses range from 50j-mor less, typically being in the I0-l5-umrange over a relatively large area. The use of a photoresist material as a spacer can provide a number of advantages. The material is insulating, inexpensive and appropriate for automated high-volumeprocessing. The
