Introduction
 A Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) is a thin , flat panel
display device used for electronically displaying
information such as text ,images and moving picture.
 LCD is used in Computer monitors, Televisions ,
Instrument panels, Gaming devices etc.
 Polarization of lights is used here to display objects.

Why LCD ?
 Smaller size —LCDs occupy approximately 60 percent less space
than CRT displays an important feature when office space is limited.
 Lower power consumption—LCDs typically consume about
half the power and emit much less heat than CRT displays.
 Lighter weight —LCDs weigh approximately 70 percent less than
CRT displays of comparable size.
 No electromagnetic fields —LCDs do not emit electromagnetic
fields and are not susceptible to them. Thus, they are suitable for use
in areas where CRTs cannot be used.
 Longer life —LCDs have a longer useful life than CRTs.

Liquid crystals
 Liquid crystals are liquid chemicals in a state that has
properties between those conventional liquid and
solid crystals. That is a liquid crystal may flow like a
liquid, but its molecules may be oriented in a crystal
like way.
 Liquid crystals molecules can be aligned precisely
when subjected to electric fields, as like as in the way
metal shavings line up in the field of a magnet. When
properly aligned, the liquid crystals allow light to pass
through.
8/7/2015 6:45:54 AM
 Two liquid crystal materials which are important in
display technology are nematic and smectic.
Nematic phase smectic phase
8/7/2015 6:45:54 AM
Liquid crystals
 The most popular liquid crystal structure is the nematic
liquid crystal(NLC). When they are in a nematic phase,
liquid crystals are a bit like a liquid: their molecules can
move around and shuffle past one another, but they all
point in broadly the same direction.
 The liquid is normally transparent, but if it is subjected to a
strong electric field, ions move through it and disrupt the
well ordered crystal structure, causing the liquid to
polarise and hence turn opaque. The removal of the
applied field allows the crystals structure to reform and the
material regains its transparency.

Liquid crystals
How LCDs work
 Liquid crystals can adopt a twisted up structure and
when we apply electricity to them, they straighten out
again. This is the key how LCD displays turn pixels on
and off.
 The polarization property of light is used in LCD
screen to switch its colored pixels on or off. At the
back of the screen, there is a bright light that shines
out towards the viewer. In front of this, there are the
millions of pixels, each one made up of smaller areas
called sub-pixels, that are colored Red, Green, or Blue.

8/7/2015 6:45:54 AM
LCD working
 Each pixel has a polarizing glass filter behind it and
another in front of it at 90 degrees. Normally the pixels
looks dark.
 In between the two polarizing filters there is a tiny twisted,
nematic liquid crystal that can be switched on or off
electronically.
 When it is switched on, it rotates the light passing through
it through 90 degrees, effectively not allowing light to flow
through the two polarizing filters and making the pixel
look dark.
 Each pixel is controlled by a separate transistor that can
switch it on or off many times each second.

Types of LCD
 Direct Address Display
 Passive Matrix Display
 Active Matrix Display
8/7/2015 6:45:54 AM
8/7/2015 6:45:54 AM
Direct Address Display
 When the display include
limited variable
components such as
 Watches
 Calculators
 Simple electronics is used
to control the
components
8/7/2015 6:45:54 AM
Passive Matrix Display
 Passive matrix display has
 Rows of electrodes on one
piece of glass.
 Columns of electrodes on the
opposing piece of glass.
 Complex electrical waveform
control the voltage
differential at the intersection
of the electrodes.
 The intersection of the
columns and rows are the
pixels
8/7/2015 6:45:54 AM
Active Matrix Display
 Allow very high resolution
 Each sub-pixel is
individually controlled by
an isolated thin-film
transistor (TFT).
 It allows the electrical
signal for each sub-pixel to
avoid influencing adjacent
elements.
 The TFT is patterned into
the glass layer
A display with
1024x768 resolution
Include 1024x768x3
= 2,359,296 sub-pixels
8/7/2015 6:45:54 AM
Twisted Nematic (TN) Display
 Is the most common LCD
Display.
 The two alignments layer
for the liquid crystal
material are orthogonal.
 The light entering the
polarize panel rotates by
the twist in the liquid
crystal and allowing it to
pass through the second
polarize
8/7/2015 6:45:54 AM
Disadvantages of Passive Matrix Display
 As more rows and columns are added the range of the
allowed voltage is reduced.
 At high range adjacent channels interferes
 Range limit reduces contrast
 Limit the types of useful liquid crystal.
 It is usually limited to about 50 rows
 Twisted nematic (TN) Display work best with large
voltage variation.
 It can not be used in Passive Matrix Display
Advantage of Active Matrix Display
 Higher sizes
 Higher contrast
 Higher gray scale
 Higher resolution
 Higher viewing angle
 Faster response. Eliminates “ghosting”
 Better control of the color
8/7/2015 6:45:54 AM
Advantage of Twisted Nematic
Display
 Shortest response time.
 Higher brightness.
 They are cheap to manufacture, resulting in low prices
for end user.
