The special feature of the book is the in depth treatment of both the electro-optic effects and the addressing schemes of liquid crystal displays elucidating their interdependence. After basic explanations readily understandable for students and stimulating for engineers, physicists and chemists, the reader is gradually led to the latest developments such as vertically aligned and mixed mode TN-displays, compensation foils, multiple line and low power addressing, transistor driven LCOS-devices with DRAM and SRAM addressing and TFT-addressing of transmissive displays with a 92% aperture ratio.
The results are analytically derived and not merely stated to enhance insight and the capability to tailor displays to individual needs or to perform novel designs. Towards this aim the propagation of light with the help of Jones vectors, four different characterizations of the state of polarization and the operation as well as the passive and active matrix addressing of all LCDs, like nematic, polymer dispersed, guest host and bistable devices is explained. Besides the mainstream twisted and supertwisted nematic LCDs attention is drawn to bistable ferroelectric, chiral nematic and modified nematic LCDs as they are most promising for future portable low power systems.
Tables on display formats and units for the measurement of displays finally render the book suitable as a reference for experts working in the field and as a textbook for universities or display courses.
The forefront of research is reached by the treatment of plastic substrates, the replacement of vacuum processes by less expensive printing and low temperature fabrication of a-Si- and poly-Si-TFTS.

From laptop computers to mobile phones and digital cinema, Liquid Crystal Displays (LCDs) form integral parts in an increasing array of consumer electronics and communication devices. Ernst Lueder's unique combination of theory andpractice presents all the information required for the development and manufacture of energy efficient, enhanced performance Liquid Crystal Displays.
* In-depth treatment of both the electro-optical effects and the addressing schemes of LCDs, 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 poer portable systems.
Practising electrical engineers, physicits, chemists and display specialists will find this a valuable resource. Researchers will appreciate the practical guidance in the design of improved LCDs, whist students are provided with a useful overview of the field.
SID Series in Display Technology
The Society for Information Display (SID) is an international society which has the aim of encouraging the development of all aspects of the field of information display. Complementary to the aims of the society the Wiley-SID series is intended to explain the latest developments in information display technology at a professional level. The broad scope of the series addresses all facets of information displays from technical aspects through systems and prototypes to standards and ergonomics.
