Liquid Crystal Display

LCD is the acronym for Liquid Crystal Display.

What is Liquid Crystal Display?

A type of flat-panel display technology used in many electronic devices, including computer monitors, televisions, smartphones, and tablets.

An LCD display consists of several layers, including two sheets of polarizing material with a layer of liquid crystals between them. When an electrical current is applied to the liquid crystals, they align themselves in a way that controls the amount of light passing through them, creating an image on the screen.

LCD displays can produce high-quality images with good color accuracy and sharpness, and are generally more energy-efficient than older display technologies like CRT. They are also thinner and lighter, making them easier to transport and install.

There are several types of LCD displays, including twisted nematic (TN), in-plane switching (IPS), and vertical alignment (VA) displays. Each type has its own advantages and disadvantages in terms of viewing angles, color accuracy, response time, and cost, making them suited for different applications.
