Paper Abstract

Current work in the area of increasing the efficiency of AMLCDs is focusing primarily on improved aperture ratio and backlight efficiency. While progress in these areas has been significant, systems are rapidly approaching the thermodynamic limits. The paper discusses what those limits are and offers several alternatives to re-architecting the LCD optical stack to change the nature of these limitations and potentially improve the efficiency of AMLCDs by more than an order of magnitude.
