Liquid crystals for twisted nematic display devices


This article describes the use of nematic liquid crystals in the Twisted Nematic Liquid Crystal Display (TN-LCD) since the large majority of instruments manufactured currently incorporating a liquid crystal display (LCD) utilise this type of device. The correlation between the electro-optical performance of these devices and the invention and synthesis of nematic liquid crystals with a continually improved property spectrum in order to meet constantly changing specifications is illustrated using the TN-LCD as an example of general trends and relationships.
