RESEARCH


Main research topics:

Development of LCD technology for ISKRA HIPOT, Šentjernej.

  • Transfer of LCD technology into mass production, HIPOT Šentjernej.
  • Development of technology for production of thermometers based on cholesteric LC's
  • Research and development of matrix LCD displays for ISKRA KIBERNETIKA, Kranj. The matrix LCD's were developed for the world first digital and portable LCD oscilloscope, as well as the world first OTDR detector of malfunction of telecomunication optical cables.
