Paper Abstract

Herein, we report that liquid crystal displays (LCDs) such as TN (twisted nematic)-mode, TB (tunable birefringence)-mode, VAN (vertically aligned nematic)-mode, BN (bent nematic)-mode, and so forth, exhibit the reduction in the operating voltage and response times by doping the nanoparticles of inorganic substances such as MgO. These effects may be attributed to the modification of the physical properties of the liquid crystal host media in these LCD cells.
