Liquid crystals and electroluminescent organic materials have a wide commercial application in flat panel displays, in products such as clocks, navigational aids and laptop computers. Traditionally there has been a divide between the two fields of organic materials research and industrial activity. This book aims to bridge that gap and provide a standard reference work for all those involved. Starting with the first prototype and moving chapter by chapter through developments to the present day, Flat Panel Displays: Advanced Organic Materials describes the display type device specifications and material development. With clear descriptions and diagrams, the reader is presented with the fundamental properties of liquid crystals and electroluminescent organic compounds, along with the mode of operation of the displays using them. Written in a non-mathematical way, this book will be welcomed by chemists, physicists and materials scientists in both industry and research.

Industry Reviews

"Any researcher involved in LCDs or OLEDs ... would be wise to buy and read this book carefully." * Materials World, Vol 9, No 4, April 2001, p 27 * "... a valuable survey of this rapidly-developing subject and is well-referenced to original literature." * Aslib Book Guide, Vol 66, No 4, April 2001 * "... the text is easy to read by the non-specialist ... will be a most useful addition to the shelves of both libraries and researchers." * Chemistry & Industry, No 13, 2 July 2001, p 410 * "... can be recommended unreservedly for interested chemists and physicists as a sound introduction to this fascinating and very active field of research." * Angewandte Chemie International Edition, Vol 40, No 14, 2001, p 2718-2719 * "... a good overview ... written with a good balance of chemistry, physics, and engineering concepts, which makes it applicable for an interdisciplinary audience ..." * Journal of the American Chemical Society, Vol 123, No 27, p 6744-6745 *
