Abstract:

The objective of this project is to use the newest advance in the technology of Ferroelctric Liquid Crystal (FLC) displays so that they can be used for Visual Landing Aids as well as other applications. Currently FLC's suffer from serious mechanical and temperature limitations due to the fact that mechanical stress alters the structure of the liquid crystal material. We propose to stabilize the cell by the introduction in the liquid crystal material of a small amount of monomer which, upon polymerization, will produce "volume stabilization" of the cell. The feasibility of this approach will be demonstrated by the delivery of a sample cell that will have been tested under conditions of mechnical shock and vibration as well as elevated temperature. The cell will be delivered with suitable electronics and software to demonstrate the moving slot required for the Visual Landing Aid.
