From laptop computers to mobile phones and digital cinema,
Liquid Crystal Displays (LOS) form integral parts in an increasing array of consumer electronics and communication devices. Ernst Lueder's unique combination of theory and practice presents all the information required for the development and manufacture of energy efficient, enhanced performance Liquid Crystal Displays.
Featuring: In-depth treatment of both the electro-optical effects and the addressing schemes of LCD's, including analysis of their interdependence; Methods for designing improved Thin Film Transistors (TFTs), active matrix LCDs, Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCOS) devices and light valves for projectors; Guidance in the use of printing processes and the design of transmissive and reflective LCDs with increased viewing angles, lower voltage levels and plastic substrates
A complete set of design equations and rules for ferroelectric and other bistable displays for use in low power portable systems.
Practising electrical engineers, physicists, chemists and display specialists will find this a valuable resource. Researchers will appreciate the practical guidance in the design of improved LCDs, whilst students are provided with a useful overview of the field.
