At first, it is proven [4-7] that liquid crystals additives to the various lubricants can significantly reduce the friction coefficient of lubricated friction pairs (in isolated cases, when twisted nematic liquid crystals are used as additives, maximum reduction of the friction coefficient of friction pairs is reached 5 times [4, 6], wear of contacting surfaces--20 times [4] and friction zone temperature--2 times [4, 7] in comparison with additive-free lubricants).
In its report, Flat Panel Monitor Trends 1999, the San Jose, California-based company says that STN-LCD super twisted nematic technology has now been all but squeezed out of the monitor market by thin firm transistor displays, and that the industry is moving towards a hybrid digital/analog interface that will speed up the transition from analog to digital.
