Paper Abstract

A detailed light budget is performed on reflective displays made from nematic droplet/polymer (NCAP) films incorporating dichroic dyes. It is shown that the radiance of these displays can be modeled using a simple scheme involving the convolution of the transmission spectra of the various components of the display. Comparisons are made between the relative importance of these optical elements in the display. It is shown that first-surface reflection (glare) is an important factor in reducing the optical performance of these displays, but that the effect of glare can be minimized through the proper choice of dye concentration.
