Abstract
We describe the material properties of a fast switching active matrix ferro electric liquid crystal mode. The mode relies on a monostable monodomain ha ving a high transmission and full grey scale capability. Experimental data are compared with the results of switching model calculations and the switc hing mechanism is discussed. The mode is suitable for video and multimedia application and compatible with conventional amorphous silicon thin film tr ansistors due to the small value of the spontaneous polarization.
