Keynote Presentation

Session Chair: Andrew J. Woods, Curtin Univ. of Technology (Australia)

A Look at the Past and Future of Stereoscopic Displays
Through a "(Liquid) Crystal Ball"

James Fergason, Fergason Patent Properties

Many stereoscopic displays use liquid crystals as an important building block. In 1958, image display using liquid crystals began when the chiral nematic liquid crystals (then designated as cholesteric liquid crystals) were used to form images of temperature patterns generated by a wide variety of inputs. This was followed by continuous development going from indirect inputs to the current electric field driven display media. In 1978, the first display fast enough for uncompromised viewing was developed using time based multiplexing. Numerous developments followed involving micro display projectors and direct view displays. The stage is set for continuous innovation for the foreseeable future. The presentation will attempt to answer the following questions: What’s old and still a source of improved image production? What are some current improvements being made which impact fully using the complete vision capabilities of the human eyes while minimizing problems of fatigue and other problem associated with conflicting stereo cues? What are the areas which will be possible of revolutionary improvements? Why are there even more LCD's in your future?

James Fergason

James Fergason published the twisted nematic field effect of liquid crystals in 1969 while at Kent State University. A year later in September he produced the first fully operational multi-digit TNLCD. Today his inventions form the foundation of the multi-billion dollar liquid crystal display industry. In May of 2006, he was named the 2006 winner of the $500,000 Lemelson-MIT Prize, the largest cash prize in the United States for invention, for his work on liquid crystal technologies. He received a B.S. degree in physics from the University of Missouri in 1956, and in 2001 he was awarded an honorary Doctor of Science Degree. He holds more than 130 U.S. patents and has 40 scientific papers. He is currently inventing for Fergason Patent Properties LLC.
