This two-volume set celebrates 50 years since liquid crystal display (LCD) technologies were first demonstrated. LCDs have grown in that short time from a laboratory curiosity to a US$100 billion industry and are now indispensable in our daily life and careers – an impressive example of successful innovation and commercialisation. The shifting focus of research follows a pattern of improved definition, increased display size, wider viewing angles and faster responses, with improvements in each area influencing the next. There is also growing interest in the use of liquid crystal materials in novel applications including sensing devices, spatial modulators, light-shielding windows, and flexible and wearable technologies.

This book discusses the latest LCD technologies, with their challenges, opportunities, and problems to be solved, at a level suited to an academic and research-professional audience. There is a particular focus on display quality such as image sticking, contrast ratio and colour hue that has not been dealt with thoroughly elsewhere. Current and future trends in liquid crystal materials and technologies based on their evolving role and new applications are discussed in detail.
