Electronic display devices provide an essential visual aid to man/machine interaction. This comprehensive work focuses on an area of considerable current interest and importance, namely the development of flat panel electronic displays. Principles and phenomena, materials and processing, device structures and fabrication, driving systems and practical applications are all discussed. Display devices described in detail include liquid crystal displays, electrochemical displays, plasma display panels, electroluminescent displays, vacuum fluorescent displays, light emitting diodes and flat-CRT displays. The text includes many tables, figures and photographs (some in colour) which help to illustrate the concepts and applications of each device.
