Abstract

Negative A-plates fabricated by mechanically stretching polystyrene are studied and their physical properties evaluated. A molecular model is developed to explain the underlying physical mechanisms. An example of a broadband wide-view liquid crystal display including a negative A-plate for phase compensation is illustrated.
