Paper Abstract

Defect free polymer-stabilized (PS-)V-mode FLCDs and intrinsic half (H-)V-mode FLCDs have been fabricated; they exhibit high contrast ratio over 700:1 and high reliability for a temperature cycling test by using specially developed polyimide alignment materials, RN-1411 series, from Nissan Chem. Ind., and also by adopting special alignment technique such as appropriate rubbing technique, photoalignment, and ion beam irradiation techniques and also particularly developed polymer-stabilization technique. These FLCDs are shown to be useful for implementing a field sequential type full color (FS-FC) LCDs due to their fast response with the response time of τ = 100μs ~ 500μs that is 10 to 100 times faster that those of LCDs using NLCs. We have developed several prototype models of FS-FC LCDs having VGA specifications that exhibit good performance for displaying fast moving video rate images with wide color gamut.
