Paper Abstract

Ever since their invention in 1980 SSFLCs have been considered promising candidates for high resolution displays. However, a number of unexpected fundamental problems have hampered fast development of this technology. We review the major problems, explorations of which have led to enormous headway during the past few years. We discuss the influence of various characteristics on the frame time of FLC displays. We demonstrate the potential of the spontaneous polarization Ps and present addressing schemes which lead to smaller frame times while maintaining moderate voltage levels.
