A liquid crystal display (LCD) consists of many components because it must convert backlight emission to uniform area emission and switch on and off the light with a liquid crystal shutter, which is positioned between two polarizers. In organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays, light emission takes place in an OLED device fabricated on the surface of a glass substrate. To design a high-quality display, many factors must be considered. Designers need to understand how intended specifications such as luminance, color reproduction, and luminance uniformity, can be achieved through display design. The four quantities are: Luminous flux; Luminous intensity; Luminance; Illuminance. This chapter also discusse passive-matrix OLED display and active-matrix OLED display design techniques.
