A liquid crystal display (LCD) consists of many optical switches, called pixels, which are arranged next to each other and can be controlled individually. Each pixel consists of three subpixels for the primary colors, which can be mixed. The pattern of light and dark pixels creates the full image seen by the viewer. Because almost no electricity flows through the LCD, this type of display is extremely energy efficient.
We offer customer-specific liquid crystal mixtures for every LCD technology, such as the classic twisted nematic (TN) technology that made the breakthrough of personal computing notebooks possible in the 1990s. Further technologies include vertical alignment (VA) and the polymer stabilized VA variant (PS-VA), in-plane switching (IPS), and fringe field switching (FFS), as well as the development of ultra-brightness fringe field switching (UB-FFS). The technology that is best suited depends on the requirements of the end device.
