A liquid-crystal display (LCD) is a flat-panel display or other electronically-modulated optical device that uses the light-modulating properties of liquid crystals. Liquid Crystal Displays are already widely used in consumer electronics, but research and development is still ongoing. The shifting focus of research follows a pattern of improved definition, increased display size, wider viewing angles and faster responses, with improvements in each area influencing the next. There is also growing interest in the use of liquid crystal materials in novel applications including sensing devices, spatial modulators and light-shielding windows. This book discusses the latest LCD technologies, with their challenges, opportunities, and problems to be solved, at a level suited to an academic and research-professional audience. There is a particular focus on display quality such as image sticking, contrast ratio and colour hue that has not been dealt with thoroughly elsewhere. Current and future trends in liquid crystal materials and technologies based on their evolving role and new applications are discussed in detail.
