This technology allows for the creation of thin and lightweight displays that are commonly used in devices such as televisions, computer monitors, and smartphones. The liquid crystals in an LCD panel can be manipulated to control the amount of light that passes through, creating the images and colors that are displayed on the screen. This makes LCDs a popular choice for visual displays due to their energy efficiency, high resolution, and wide viewing angles.
