Paper Abstract

Bistable reflective cholesteric displays offer a solution for low power consumption displays. Image retention in zero field combined with inherent reflectivity (no need for backlighting) makes them ideal for applications such as portable document viewers. Here, we present an overview of the current research activities and achievements in this technology with focus on recent developments in white-on-black and stacked color displays, low cost drive electronics, video rate potential, and newly developed field induced polymer walls.
