Liquid Crystal Displays (LCD):
First introduced in watches and clocks in the1970's, LCDs are now used to display images in monitors. A newer technology in computer screens is TFT LCD monitors. These are light weight monitors and are used in laptop computers. Active matrix structure is used by most of the modern LCD monitors and television sets. In this technology, a matrix of thin-film transistors (TFT) is added to the polarizing and color filters. It enhances the display to make it look brighter and sharper. It can also produce much better images and have quicker response times.
