CAIRO BOOKS's Description
From laptop computers and mobile phones to digital cinema, Liquid Crystal
Displays (LCDs) are integral components in an increasing array of highly
desirable consumer electronics and communication devices, and are already the
predominant technology used in flat panel displays.
This inter-disciplinary book is intended as an introductory guide to the
fundamental properties of liquid crystals and their applications in display and
photonic devices, providing a basic understanding of the physics, optics,
electro-optics, and material aspects for state-of-the-art display and photonic
Fundamentals of Liquid Crystal Devices includes: A comprehensive overview of
LCDs including liquid crystal physics, electro-optical properties, simulation
techniques and display and photonic applications. Numerous examples and case
studies, solved problems and challenging homework conundrums starting with
basic physics and gradually introducing advanced device concepts and
structures. The principles for designing advanced specialist transmissive,
reflective, and transflective liquid crystal displays. Chapters on emerging
technologies such as tuneable liquid crystal photonic devices including laser
beam steering, light switches for telecommunication and tunable-focus lenses.
Fundamentals of Liquid Crystal Devices is a valuable resource for advanced
undergraduate and graduate students following display systems courses, who will
benefit from its systematic approach. The introduction of advanced device
concepts and structures means that display engineers, scientists, and
technicians active in the field can also utilise this unique resource, as can
developers of a wide range of systems and applications.
