We have developed an A4-paper-sized ferroelectric liquid crystal (FLC) display that includes a flexible backlight sheet. The flexibility of the backlight was achieved by a combination of a side light consisting of three-primary-color LED chips and a thin flexible-polymer light-guide plate. A plastic substrate with low thermal distortion was adopted, and the compounding ratio of the liquid crystal (LC) and the monomer was adjusted to improve the molecular alignment of the composite film of the FLC and the fine polymer fibers near the polymer walls. Colored moving images were displayed on a flexible screen by driving with an active matrix technique using an external switch transistor-array based on a field-sequential-color method.
