At the recent Society for Information Display conference in Los Angeles, Samsung showed off a 15-inch display made with blue-phase liquid crystals, a type of liquid crystal that researchers have known about for years but that no one had ever demonstrated in a working display.

Due to the optical properties of blue-phase liquid crystals, the new display has a much wider viewing angle than traditional LCDs do, and it can refresh images on a screen four times faster than early LCDs can, significantly reducing blur. Moreover, the new display can be made in fewer processing steps than today's LCDs require, drastically lowering costs.
