Video: Demonstration of Spin Coating Flexible Substrates (Parafilm)

If you have ever wondered how to spin coat thin and flexible substrates this video shows how simple it can be and the benefit of using a vacuum free chuck such as on the Ossila spin coater. Although we have worked with flexible PET substrates extensively in the past to make real devices such as OLEDs and OPVs, here we take the the technique to the extreme and demonstrate spin coating parafilm (yes, really, parafilm). Even we didn't think this would be possible until we tried it but it's a great demonstration that spin coating onto flexible substrates is really easy using a vacuum free chuck.
