Surface Polymer Stabilisation in Lcds


Surface Polymer Stabilisation in LCD

Usually, in the polymer stabilisation involves the entire liquid crystal bulk in the LCD. According to our patented method, polymer stabilised is only a tiny liquid crystal bulk layer adjacent to the confining substrates’ surface, thus being invisible for the light.
Such a surface polymer stabilisation is affecting strongly the performance of the LCD changing the anchoring strength, threshold voltage and switching times.

Typical Applications :
– Information display (eg. display panel)
– Smart glasses
– Smart and fast shutters

Usually, polymer stabilization involves the entire bulk of liquid crystal layer detrimental to optical quality. Our patented method involves surface polymer stabilization of the liquid crystal layer adjacent to the confining substrates’ surface, which becomes invisible for the light and, thus, it does not affect the optical properties… Discover more

Novel LCD electrode structure, so called Perforated Electrode, (PE), is suggested for generating a Fringe Field Switching, enabling to generate images with 360º viewing angle constant contrast... Discover more

Conventional LCDs are electrically addressed. However, a different approach for addressing of the LCDs, such as liquid crystal light shutters, can be employed by incorporating in the LCD photo generated voltage units (PVU) so that the device can be optically and/or electrically addressed...
