Advances in Liquid Crystal Materials Expanding Their Scope in Novel Applications

via PRNewswire

PALO ALTO , Calif., May 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Advances in liquid crystal materials have had a huge impact on the growth of information technologies, with liquid crystal display (LCD) technology fostering the development of lightweight laptops, mobile phones and other handheld devices. Liquid crystals have also integrated themselves into the telecommunications sector, as well as photonics and optical correction systems. However, researchers believe that the application potential of these materials is still an untapped area and the search for new applications and technological improvements is driving further advances in this field.

New research from Frost & Sullivan (, Advances inLiquid Crystal Materials, finds that technology advancements in liquid crystal materials will have an impact on future display and non-display applications.

Current liquid crystal research has addressed subjects such as: development of new materials, materials that facilitate improved video performance, liquid crystal polymers and elastomers as well as topological defects and patterns.

"In the future, manufacture of low-power displays without backlights, paper-like displays, head-mounted displays and large flat displays will offer opportunities for liquid crystal materials," notes Frost & Sullivan SeniorResearch Analyst Archana Jayarajah. "Liquid crystal material manufacturers are also exploring the possibility of using these materials for non-display applications, but are yet to establish their commercial viability."
