Format: Paperback
"Fundamentals" is right in the title. Covers AMLCD physics, technology and manufacturing in a very straightforward and easy to read text. It is useful if you are curious about how AMLCD's work, but does not have enough depth for serious study.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of rare technical books that is enjoyable to read. It provides a step-by-step introduction into device physics, technology, and manufacturing of active matrix liquid crystal displays - in an easy and reader-friendly manner. The author explains the basic device physics of LCDs, gives a historical perspective, provides typical geometrical and physical parameters values - so that the reader can get a "feel" of the problem (the order of magnitude of the parameters and quantities involved, why things are done in this or that way - both from scientific/physics perspective, and from the manufacturing and technological constraints viewpoint). There is a very good balance between rigorous scientific material, and empirical knowledge in this book. As a novice in LCD area (but having a strong device physics background) I had many specific questions on the structure, operation principle,and issues in LCDs - with most of these questions answered in the book. I can only wish that all the books on semiconductor device physics and technology would be that well written.

Congratulations, Dr. den Boer!

Format: Paperback
This is a very well written explanation on how active matrix displays work. It goes into a lot of general detail. I would say this is aimed at electrical engineers, but it is on a relatively low level.

I found this to be one of the few engineering books that are well written and clear.
