Welcome to the website of liquid crystal displays (LCDs). Here you will
see different LCDs working modes. Brief explanations of the working
principles will be given, plus their advantages and disadvantages. In
the active LCD research community, there are exciting results appearing
almost everyday; what will be presented in this website are those
popular display modes, or commercially adopted ones. In the near
future, those new modes will be included in this website.
The website is for general audience who has little or no liquid crystal
knowledge, and would like to explore about the LCDs' working principles
and new display technologies.
It would be
greatly appreciated that you could give credit and email the
if you would like to use any content of this website for reference.
