CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Sunlight readable transflective liquid crystal displays, used on devices from
cell phones and portable media players, to GPS and even some desktop monitors,
have become indispensable in our day-to-day lives.
Transflective Liquid Crystal Displays is a methodical examination of this
display technology, providing a useful reference to the fundamentals of the
topic. Including thorough descriptions of the essential physics of
transflective LCD technologies, the book also compares transflective LCD
technology with alternatives, such as OLED displays, to enable display
engineers to appropriately select the correct device for their particular
application. Includes detailed descriptions of both pure transmissive and
reflective LCDs, and the design considerations and performance of combining
these into small mobile displays. Focuses on fundamental elements, such as
double cell gap transflective LCDs, wide-viewing angle technology, light
polarization and wide-view linear and circular polarizers, video rate display
by colour sequential technologies, colour sciences and engineering, and
backlights. Describes the latest LCD technologies, such as polymer-sustained
surface alignment technology, and the possible trends which could be applied to
transflective LCDs in the future.
Its focus on the fundamentals of transflective liquid crystal displays makes
this an ideal graduate text, while display engineers, scientists, developers
and technicians working with this technology will also welcome this resource.
