Paper Abstract

Liquid crystal (LC) material properties change with temperature. The goal is to find a material that will have a very wide temperature range (minus 54 degrees to plus 102 degrees Celsius) and maintain good response time and viewing angle performance. We find that LC materials with a high clearing point (greater than +100 degrees Celsius) have too high of a viscosity (approximately 26 mm2/s) at room temperature to meet the response time criteria (less than 25 msec.) if avionics display. Several new LC materials were studied, and critical parametric for avionics are discussed.
