Flat-panel displays are rapidly becoming the displays of choice for a variety of information-displaying applications ranging from laptop computers to automobile and cockpit read-out devices. Passive matrix liquid-crystal displays, and more recently, active matrix liquid-crystal displays (AMLCDs) have led the way in the display revolution. In addition, emissive displays based on field emission, electroluminescence, and plasma charge are attracting considerable interest. Ultimately, however, the advancement in flat-panel display applications will be driven by cost and performance advantages which are dependent on the advancement of materials and process technologies used to fabricate the displays. This book focuses on the materials and large-area processes used by the various display technologies, both emissive and nonemissive, including liquid-crystal, electroluminescent, plasma, field-emission, and micromechanical displays. Topics include: AMLCD materials and processes; thin-film transistors for AMLCDs; emissive displays and materials and phosphor materials.
