Transflective Liquid Crystal Displays / Edition 1 available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
Sunlight readable transflective liquid crystal displays, used ondevices from cell phones and portable media players, to GPS andeven some desktop monitors, have become indispensable in ourday-to-day lives.
Transflective Liquid Crystal Displays is a methodicalexamination of this display technology, providing a usefulreference to the fundamentals of the topic. Includingthorough descriptions of the essential physics of transflective LCDtechnologies, the book also compares transflective LCD technologywith alternatives, such as OLED displays, to enable displayengineers to appropriately select the correct device for theirparticular application.
- Includes detailed descriptions of both pure transmissive andreflective LCDs, and the design considerations and performance ofcombining these into small mobile displays.
- Focuses on fundamental elements, such as double cell gaptransflective LCDs, wide-viewing angle technology, lightpolarization and wide-view linear and circular polarizers, videorate display by colour sequential technologies, colour sciences andengineering, and backlights.
- Describes the latest LCD technologies, such aspolymer-sustained surface alignment technology, and the possibletrends which could be applied to transflective LCDs in thefuture.
Its focus on the fundamentals of transflective liquid crystaldisplays makes this an ideal graduate text, while displayengineers, scientists, developers and technicians working with thistechnology will also welcome this resource.
The Society for Information Display (SID) is an internationalsociety, which has the aim of encouraging the development of allaspects of the field of information display. Complementary to theaims of the society, the Wiley-SID series is intended to explainthe latest developments in information display technology at aprofessional level. The broad scope of the series addresses allfacets of information displays from technical aspects throughsystems and prototypes to standards and ergonomics
