Abstract:

A survey of basic research was conducted to determine the feasible solid state media candidates for use in high contrast aircraft cockpit displays operating in a reflective or transmissive mode. A model for reflective and transmissive displays was developed in order to relate display performance to physical poperties of the media. Threshold levels were set and candidates screened against these criteria. No solid state candidates passed this screening in all respects. PLZT ceramic plates and alkali halide M-centers were found to be acceptable with reservations and warrant further consideration. Author
