    The modem history of liquid crystals has been dominated by the development of electronic displays. These developments began in 1964, when Heilmeier of RCA Laboratories discovered the guest-host mode and the dynamic-scattering mode. He thought a wall-sized flat-panel color TV was just around the corner From that point on, twisted-nematic (TN) mode, super TN mode, amorphous-Si field-effect transisto... View full abstract»

    After decades of research and development, plasma displays are finally beginning to appear in the commercial and consumer markets. Following a short review on the basic principles of direct and alternating current plasma displays, we present a summary of the status of color plasma displays. Plasma display panels (PDPs) have finally achieved luminance and efficiency values on par with hi-definition... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a comparative evaluation of liquid-crystal displays (LCDs) and cathode-ray tube (CRT) displays from a color-rendition and color-calibration perspective. Common display calibration models and assumptions are reviewed and their applicability to LCDs and CRTs is evaluated through an experimental study. The displays are compared with respect to the color-calibration accuracy, ease ... View full abstract»

    Getters play a crucial role in solution of the main technical issues on the way to commercial exploitation of new flat-panel technologies: packaging, reliability and lifetime. The production steps of flat-panel displays (FPDs) often include a long baking and exhaust process to minimize the impurity content prior to the final sealing, which dramatically increases the manufacturing costs up to a lev...

    One of the papers presented at the IEEE History of Telecommunications Conference in Newfoundland last July looked at the first transatlantic cables from an Irish perspective. The author has studied the local impact of the cable as a relatively poor and isolated community suddenly found itself at a hub in the worldwide telecommunications network. The paper describes the Valentia community, the cabl... View full abstract»

    The rivalry between the cathode-ray tube and flat-panel displays (FPDs) has intensified as performance of some FPDs now exceeds that of that entrenched leader in many cases. Besides the well-known active-matrix-addressed liquid-crystal display, plasma, organic light-emitting diodes, and liquid-crystal-on-silicon displays are now finding new applications as the manufacturing, process engineering, m...

    Field-emission displays (FEDs) promise to provide high-resolution emissive flat-panel displays. Currently, the development of Spindt-type FEDs is at an advanced stage with monocolor FEDs being supplied to the marketplace. Full-color FEDs are getting ready for commercial production. A number of other field-emission electron sources, including carbon nanotube and ballistic electron tunneling, are no... View full abstract»

    Ultralarge active-matrix liquid-crystal displays (AMLCD) and plasma display panels (PDP) are both being developed as flat-panel display (FPD) competitors to the bulky cathode-ray tube for color video and monitor applications. The visual requirements for ultralarge FPDs are defined and their limits quantitatively delineated Tiling, with or without seams, has been shown to provide the only path to u... View full abstract»

    A new class of compact high-definition electronic projection systems has emerged that are based on microdisplays. Very large scale integration process technology is adapted to fabricate the three classes of microdisplays: (1) transmissive liquid crystal on high-temperature polysilicon/quartz; (2) microelectromechanical devices on silicon; (3) and reflective liquid crystal on silicon. A variety of ... View full abstract»

    Advances in active-matrix array flat panels for displays over the last decade have led to the development of flat-panel X-ray image detectors. Recent flat-panel detectors have shown image quality exceeding that of X-ray film/screen cassettes. They can also permit the instantaneous capture, readout, and display of digital X-ray images and, hence, enable the clinical transition to digital radiograph... View full abstract»
