Liquid crystal mixtures for use over an active matrix substrate must have a high resistivity and, to maintain high value during the lifetime of the display, the materials must be very stable. Many such liquid crystal mixtures are known and used in twisted nematic displays but they are of low birefringence; very few high birefringence liquid crystals of this type are known. Several classes of liquid crystal which fulfill these criteria have been developed and formulated into low melting point mixtures suitable for use with UV curing prepolymers. The properties of PDLC films containing these new mixtures show that the high birefringence values now possible can lead to substantially increased contrast ratios.
