liquid crystal displays display technology creol

1. Introduction

Shin-Tson Wu, (Chinese:吳詩聰) is an American physicist and inventor. He is currently a Pegasus professor at CREOL, The College of Optics and Photonics, University of Central Florida. Wu's contributions to liquid-crystal research and the resulting patent portfolio for next-generation liquid crystal displays (LCDs), adaptive optics, laser-beam steering, biophotonics, and new photonic materials, have had a major impact on display technology worldwide.

2. Biography

Wu's invention of mixed-mode twisted nematic liquid crystal display have been widely implemented in commercial products. https://handwiki.org/wiki/index.php?curid=1905640

Wu was born in Nantou, Taiwan. He received his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Southern California (Los Angeles, USA) and BS in physics from the National Taiwan University (Taipei). Prior to joining the University of Central Florida in 2001, he was with Hughes Research Laboratories (Malibu, California, USA) for 18 years. During that period, he made his first significant invention: mixed-mode twisted nematic liquid crystal cell, which is an integral part of high-resolution, high-contrast reflective and transflective LCDs, including direct-view, projection and wearable displays. His technologies have enabled new types of optical beam-control devices and have impacted many who have ever used an LCD product. In addition, Wu's investigations and theories about the properties of liquid crystal at infrared region have paved foundation for defense applications of liquid crystals.

Wu's current research interests at the University of Central Florida include advanced liquid crystal displays, adaptive optics, laser beam control, new photonic materials, and bio-photonics. He has co-authored 7 books, over 460 journal papers, and obtained 82 U.S. patents. Several of his patents have been implemented in display and photonic devices.

He was the founding Editor-In-Chief of the IEEE/OSA Journal of Display Technology. Currently, he is serving on the SID Honors and Awards Committee, and the SPIE Award Committee.
