Embodiment

Fig. 1 looks schematic diagram on a kind of part of contact panel of the first embodiment of the present invention.Fig. 2 A and Fig. 2 B are respectively the diagrammatic cross-sections of Fig. 1 Vertical Centre Line A-A ' and hatching line B-B '.Please refer to Fig. 1, the contact panel 100 of the present embodiment comprises substrate 110, a plurality of the first sensing serials 120 and a plurality of the second sensing serials 130.

In the present embodiment, these first sensing serials 120 and these the second sensing serials 130 are disposed on the same surface of substrate 110, wherein the material of substrate 110 can be glass, sapphire glass, polyethylene terephthalate (polyethylene terephthalate, hereinafter to be referred as PET), polymethylmethacrylate (polymethylmethacrylate, hereinafter to be referred as PMMA), carbonic allyl ester (propylene carbonate, hereinafter to be referred as PC), triacetyl cellulose (cellulose triacetate, hereinafter to be referred as TAC) or by the stacking substrate forming of said two devices.

In addition, each first sensing serials 120 is extended and is electrically insulated each other along first direction D1.Each second sensing serials 130 is extended and is electrically insulated each other along second direction D2, and wherein first direction D1 and second direction D2 are crossing, and the first direction D1 of the present embodiment is for example perpendicular to second direction D2, but the invention is not restricted to this.

Particularly, each first sensing serials 120 comprises a plurality of the first sensor pads 122 and a plurality of bridging structure 124, and wherein each bridging structure 124 is connected in series adjacent two the first sensor pads 122 along first direction D1.Each second sensing serials 130 comprises a plurality of the second sensor pads 132 and a plurality of connecting portion 134, and each connecting portion 134 is connected in series adjacent two the second sensor pads 132 along second direction D2.

In the present embodiment, contact panel 100 can further comprise insulation course 140.Insulation course 140 is disposed between these first sensing serials 120 and these the second sensing serials 130, so that these first sensing serials 120 are electrically insulated each other with these second sensing serials 130.Particularly, the insulation course 140 of the present embodiment for example comprises the insulation system of a plurality of islands, and these insulation systems are disposed between bridging structure interlaced with each other 124 and corresponding connecting portion 134, but the present invention is not in order to limit the shape of insulation course 140.In other embodiments, insulation course 140 can be also the insulation system of strip or be covered in by entire surface in Touch Zone (being the region at these first sensing serials 120 and these the second sensing serials 130 places).In addition, the material of the insulation course 140 of the present embodiment is for example organic material or transparent photoresistance, and its refractive index approximately drops in 1.5 to 1.9 scope, and its thickness approximately drops on 1um (micron) to the scope of 2um.

Please refer to Fig. 1, Fig. 2 A and Fig. 2 B, in the present embodiment, the order that forms these first sensing serials 120, these second sensing serials 130 and insulation course 140 on substrate 110 is for example each bridging structure 124 that first forms the first sensing serials 120, connect and form insulation course 140, finally forming the first sensor pad 122 and second sensing serials 130 of these the first sensing serials 120.

In other words, the first sensor pad 122 of first sensing serials 120 of the present embodiment can be form simultaneously and can have identical material with the second sensor pad 132 of the second sensing serials 130 and connecting portion 134, and the second sensor pad 132 of the second sensing serials 130 and connecting portion 134 are for example integrally formed.For example, the material of the first sensor pad 122 and the second sensing serials 130 can be metal oxide or grid-shaped metal or the above-mentioned at least stack layer of the two that indium tin oxide, indium-zinc oxide, aluminium tin-oxide, aluminium zinc oxide, indium germanium zinc oxide etc. can conduct electricity and light transmittance is good.In the present embodiment, the material of the first sensor pad 122 and the second sensing serials 130 illustrates with the metal oxide that can conduct electricity and light transmittance is good.

On the other hand, each bridging structure 124 of first sensing serials 120 of the present embodiment and the first sensor pad 122 and the second sensing serials 130 are for form simultaneously, and the material of each bridging structure 124 is different from the material of the first sensor pad 122.For example, the material of each bridging structure 124 can be the good metal material of conduction.

Furthermore, be configured on substrate 110 to these bridging structures 124 of the present embodiment, these first sensor pads 122 and these the second sensor pad 132 coplines, and 124 of these bridging structures, between these insulation courses 140 and substrate 110, make each connecting portion 134 cross over corresponding bridging structure 124 to be electrically connected adjacent two the second sensor pads 132.In addition, the sidewall of each bridging structure 124 is covered and contacts (as shown in Figure 2 A) by these the first sensor pads 122 of correspondence, and the sidewall of the insulation system of each island (insulation course 140) is covered and contact (as shown in Figure 2 B) by these connecting portions 134 of correspondence.

In the present embodiment, each bridging structure 124 comprises conductive pattern 124a and optical match pattern 124b, wherein optical match pattern 124b configuration conductive pattern 124a is on user's surface, to reduce view direction glazed thread L at the reflectivity of bridging structure 124 regions.In the present embodiment, user carries out touch-control from the outside surface of substrate 110, and the outside surface (surface relative with said elements configuration plane) that is to say substrate 110 is touch surface.Therefore, the optical match pattern 124b of the present embodiment is for example between conductive pattern 124a and substrate 110.In other embodiments, when user is while carrying out touch-control by a side of said elements configuration plane, by conductive pattern 124a being arranged between optical match pattern 124b and substrate 110, (make optical match pattern 124b be positioned at conductive pattern 124a on user's surface), reduce view direction glazed thread L at the reflectivity of bridging structure 124 regions.

In addition, the optical match pattern 124b of the present embodiment has identical in fact profile with conductive pattern 124a.Particularly, the sidewall of the conductive pattern 124a of each bridging structure 124 is for example to trim with the sidewall of optical match pattern 124b.

In the prior art, with metal material, make the bridging structure that connects two adjacent sensor pads, and this metal bridge connecting structure is built bridge also referred to as metal.The reflectivity that metal is built bridge is high, causes light to be reflected in metal bridge formation place major part, and causes the visual effect of contact panel bad (being for example to see bright spot in the region at metal bridge formation place).By contrast, the present embodiment can be by arranging optical match pattern 124b between conductive pattern 124a and substrate 110, utilizes the mating of refractive index of conductive pattern 124a and optical match pattern 124b, in order to reduce the reflectivity of conductive pattern 124a region.

Particularly, conductive pattern 124a is made by metal, and has low light transmittance.The light transmittance of the optical match pattern 124b of each bridging structure 124 is relatively greater than the light transmittance of conductive pattern 124a.Therefore, when light L by substrate 110 when the first sensing serials 120 is irradiated, light L can and expose to conductive pattern 124a through optical match pattern 124b.That is to say, optical match pattern 124b not is deliberately used for stopping the member of light L, but the member that can allow light L to pass through.In addition, the conductive pattern 124a making due to metal material can be considered a reflecting surface, so light L is not easy by conductive pattern 124a, and is subject to stopping of conductive pattern 124a.Thus, the present embodiment can consider to be positioned at the reflex that conductive pattern 124a top rete causes light L, and can only consider to be positioned at the reflectivity of the optical match pattern 124b between substrate 110 and conductive pattern 124a, judge the visual effect at bridging structure 124 places, positions.

Specifically, by following reflectance formula (comprising formula 1, formula 2 and formula 3), the present embodiment can be derived ranges of indices of refraction and the extinction coefficient scope of optical match pattern 124b, with so that light L by substrate 110 when the first sensing serials 120 is irradiated, the reflectivity of light L in bridging structure 124 regions be approximately identical to light L at bridging structure 124 reflectivity with exterior domain.

R = | r 01 + r 12 × e - 2 iβ 1 + r 01 r 12 × e - 2 iβ | 2 (formula 1)

β = 2 π λ N 1 d 1 (formula 2)

N 1=n 1+ ik 1(formula 3)

Wherein, R is reflectivity, r 01for the reflection coefficient of light L at substrate 110 and optical match pattern 124b intersection, r 12for the reflection coefficient of light L at optical match pattern 124b and conductive pattern 124a intersection, λ is the wavelength of light L, d 1for the thickness of optical match pattern 124b, n 1for the refractive index of optical match pattern 124b, and k 1extinction coefficient for optical match pattern 124b.

Via analog result, in the refractive index of optical match pattern 124b drops on 1.5 to 2.5 scope, and the extinction coefficient of optical match pattern 124b drops in 0.5 to 2.5 scope etc. under condition, light L can be less than 20% at the reflectivity of bridging structure 124 regions.Moreover, under these conditions, if the thickness Hb of the optical match pattern 124b of each bridging structure 124 is greater than and be less than light L further can be reduced to below 10% at the reflectivity of bridging structure 124 regions.That is to say, the present embodiment can mate with thickness with refractive index, the extinction coefficient of optical match pattern 124b by conductive pattern 124a, reduce the reflectivity of conductive pattern 124a (bridging structure 124) region, and make light L by substrate 110 when the first sensing serials 120 is irradiated, the reflectivity of light L in bridging structure 124 regions be approximately identical to light L at bridging structure 124 reflectivity with exterior domain.Thus, can make the contact panel 100 of the present embodiment there is good visual effect.

In the present embodiment, conductive pattern 124a can be single layer structure.The material of described single layer structure can be selected from nitride, oxide, the oxides of nitrogen of gold, silver, copper, aluminium, chromium, platinum, rhodium, molybdenum, titanium, nickel, indium, tin or its alloy or above-mentioned metal.Or conductive pattern 124a can be multiple-level stack layer, and these a little stack layers have different materials, and these materials can be selected from the material of above-mentioned single layer structure.On the other hand, the material of the optical match pattern 124b of each bridging structure 124 can be selected the material identical with above-mentioned single layer structure.Yet, the material of optical match pattern 124b need have different mixing ratios from the material of conductive pattern 124a, to there is different refractive indexes, under matching in order to the refractive index at both, reduce the reflectivity of conductive pattern 124a (bridging structure 124) region.

For example, at general bridging structure, be under the structure of molybdenum aluminium molybdenum or aluminium molybdenum, light L at the reflectivity of bridging structure up to 50~90%.By contrast, for example, if the design that adopts the present embodiment changes the molybdenum that approaches user in molybdenum aluminium molybdenum or aluminium molybdenum structure most to take optical match pattern oxide, nitride or the oxides of nitrogen of molybdenum (as) while configuring, light L will reduce to below 20% at the reflectivity of bridging structure 124, or under the structure of molybdenum aluminium molybdenum or aluminium molybdenum structure, on the molybdenum that approaches most user, configure optical match pattern (being for example the oxide of molybdenum, nitride or oxides of nitrogen), reflectivity can be reduced to below 10% more again.In addition, consider the electric conductivity of conductive pattern 124a, so that contact panel 100 maintains certain sensing sensitivity, the thickness Ha of conductive pattern 124a is for example greater than and the thickness Hb of optical match pattern 124b is for example less than

In addition, each bridging structure 124 of the present embodiment can further comprise the protection pattern 124c being disposed on conductive pattern 124a.That is to say, conductive pattern 124a is between protection pattern 124c and optical match pattern 124b.Protection pattern 124c can be used for protecting conductive pattern 124a, increases the structural strength of bridging structure 124 and avoid conductive pattern 124a oxidation etc.In addition, protection pattern 124c can also be used to increase the tack between conductive pattern 124a and insulation course 140.Therefore, the material of the better adhesion effect of the protection optional apparatus of pattern 124c, for example, be the material of aforementioned optical match pattern 124b.In addition, the thickness Hc of protection pattern 124c is for example less than

It should be noted that, the design concept of the conductive pattern 124a in above-mentioned bridging structure 124 and optical match pattern 124b is also applicable to the first sensor pad 122 and the second sensing serials 130.Particularly, in other embodiments, when the material of the first sensor pad 122 and the second sensing serials 130 adopt be the relatively high grid-shaped metal of reflectivity time, these first sensor pads 122 and these the second sensing serials 130 can further comprise optical match layer.Namely, these first sensor pads 122 and these the second sensing serials 130 comprise respectively grid-shaped metal layer and optical match layer, and optical match layer is positioned at grid-shaped metal aspect on user's surface.Thus, by grid-shaped metal layer, mate with thickness with refractive index, the extinction coefficient of optical match layer, can reduce view direction glazed thread at the reflectivity of grid-shaped metal layer region, and make contact panel there is good visual effect.

On the other hand, except metal, build bridge and can affect the visual effect of contact panel, these first sensing serials 120 also may affect the visual effect of contact panel with the profile of these the second sensing serials 130.Therefore, in another embodiment, as shown in Fig. 3 A and Fig. 3 B, aforesaid contact panel 100 also can further comprise delustring layer 150.Fig. 3 A and Fig. 3 B are the diagrammatic cross-sections of a kind of contact panel of the second embodiment of the present invention.Please refer to Fig. 3 A and Fig. 3 B, delustring layer 150 is for example on the Touch Zone (i.e. the region at the first sensing serials 120 and the second sensing serials 130 places) that is covered in all sidedly contact panel 100, and these of the present embodiment the first sensing serials 120 and these the second sensing serials 130 are for example between delustring layer 150 and substrate 110, but the invention is not restricted to this.In other embodiments, delustring layer 150 can be to be also covered on substrate 110, and between substrate 110 and these the first sensing serials 120 and substrate 110 and these the second sensing serials 130.In addition, the material of delustring layer 150 can be general insulation material, as the stack layer of monox, silicon nitride, silicon oxynitride, sieve and silica-sesquioxide or above-mentioned at least two kinds of materials.

By the setting of delustring layer 150, the clearance G (please refer to Fig. 1) of light L between sensor pad (comprising the first sensor pad 122 and the second sensor pad 132) can obtain compensation with sensing serials (referring to the first sensing serials 120 and the second sensing serials 130) difference in reflectivity between the two.Thus, can reduce the profile of each sensing serials 120 and 130 for the visuality of human eye, and further promote the visual effect of contact panel 100.Working as the first sensor pad 122 and the second sensing serials 130 is in addition grid-shaped metals, for example when being formed with the identical material of conductive pattern, can on the first sensor pad 122 and the corresponding view direction of the second sensing serials 130, (namely between user and the first sensor pad 122 and the second sensing serials 130) configure above-mentioned optical match pattern equally, to reduce the reflectivity of contact panel.

Fig. 4 looks schematic diagram on a kind of part of contact panel of the third embodiment of the present invention.Fig. 5 A and Fig. 5 B are respectively the diagrammatic cross-sections of Fig. 4 Vertical Centre Line C-C ' and hatching line D-D '.Please refer to Fig. 4, Fig. 5 A and Fig. 5 B, the contact panel 400 of the present embodiment and aforementioned contact panel 100 have similar rete, similar material and similar effect.Both difference is mainly, these first sensing serials 420 of contact panel 400, the formation of these second sensing serials 430 and insulation course 440 is sequentially: the first sensor pad 422 and these the second sensing serials 430 that first form these the first sensing serials 420, connect and form insulation course 440, finally form each bridging structure 424 of the first sensing serials 420, above-mentioned the first sensing serials 420 wherein, the second sensing serials 430, the material of insulation course 440 and structure can be with reference to the first sensing serials 120 of aforementioned contact panel 100, the second sensing serials 130, the material of insulation course 140 and structure, at this, just repeat no more.

Furthermore, these connecting portions 434 of the present embodiment, these first sensor pads 422 and these the second sensor pad 432 coplines, and 434 of these connecting portions, between insulation course 440 and substrate 110, make each bridging structure 424 cross over corresponding connecting portion 434 to be electrically connected adjacent two the first sensor pads 422.That is to say, the subregion of each connecting portion 434 of the present embodiment is covered by corresponding bridging structure 424.(as shown in Figure 5 B).In addition, the subregion of each first sensor pad 422 is between the optical match pattern 424b of each bridging structure 424 and substrate 110 (as shown in Figure 5A).
