Liquid Crystal Displays and Foveated Imaging

Shin-Tson Wu, PREP Professor of Optics, UCF School of Optics

Abstract

Liquid crystal has been used widely for displays and photonic imaging devices. Displacement of CRTs with LCDs is taking place in all areas, e.g., desktop computers, TVs and projectors. In addition, new applications for cellular phones, digital cinema and foveated imaging are emerging.

In this talk, I will describe the latest development in large screen LCD TVs, transflective LCDs for cell phones, and foveated imaging devices for animating human vision.
