LCD Research Commemorative Symposium

Symposium to commemorate 50 years of LCD Research

On Tuesday, 28th May 1968, at their headquarters in the Rockefeller Building in New York, RCA announced the world’s first Liquid Crystal Display, based on the work of George Heilmeier and his team. Although RCA were to drop the R&D programme a few years later, this announcement stimulated researchers in the UK and Japan to instigate their own LCD research programmes, research that directly led to the success of the LCD seen today. This special event will include speakers involved in those early events, as well as those currently researching the next generation of LCD and related display technologies.
