Polymer dispersed liquid crystal (PDLC) is a light scattering material that operates on the principle of electrically modulating the refractive index of the liquid crystal in an optical isotropic, transparent solid. The principle of operation of the PDLC device, the interface requirements between PDLC material and its driving circuit are studied. For high definition television (HDTV) application, a detailed comparison of PDLC vs. twisted nematic/super twisted nematic (TN/STN) display devices will be discussed. It was found that single crystal metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistor (MOSFET) is better than conventionally used thin film transistor (TFT) in driving these PDLC light valves.
