An effective method to create very large electronic displays forms the structure using fiber or tube arrays or electroded sheets containing wire electrodes. The electroded sheets are formed by embedding wire electrodes into the surface of a polymer substrate and electrically connecting a patterned transparent conductive electrode lines to the wires. The wire electrodes are used to carry the bulk of the current and the transparent conductive electrode is used to spread the charge or voltage from the wire electrode across the line of pixels. In most display applications, the electroded surface of the electroded sheet has to be flattened. The electroded sheets may be used to form many different types of displays.
