Full color images have been demonstrated on a high frame rate, binary, ferroelectric liquid crystal (FLC) display or spatial light modulator (SLM). This display consists of binary surface stabilized ferroelectric liquid (SSFLC) crystal over a custom foundry CMOS silicon VLSI (FLC/VLSI) backplane and provides a new alternative to current well established display technologies. Many issues have been considered to enhance the optical quality of these displays such as the post-processing of the foundry silicon to achieve a high optical flatness and pixel fill factor; with improved liquid crystal alignment. Optimization of electrical addressing schemes and color illumination for video display purposes have been investigated resulting in recommendations for future developments.
