Paper Abstract

A high resolution (near 1000 l.p.i.) ferroelectric liquid crystal display operating at video rate has been demonstrated. The display uses a novel mode of matrix addressing which together with an improved drive scheme gives high speed and contrast. Details of the construction, optical properties, and drive electronics of the device are described. This new technology offers high pixel aperture ratios and wide angle of view; its suitability for both helmet mounted and direct view applications are discussed.
