CRYSTALOID JOINS WITH KENT'S LIQUID CRYSTAL INSTITUTE FOR JOINT PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

 HUDSON, Ohio, Sept. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Crystaloid(R) and the Glenn H. Brown Liquid Crystal Institute at Kent State University have expanded a joint working relationship designed to share company and university resources, according to Dr. Haiji Yuan, Crystaloid's R&D manager.
 Crystaloid, a manufacturer of liquid crystal displays (LCD), has joined the Industrial Partnership Program of ALCOM (Center for Advanced Liquid Crystalline Optical Materials) consortium connected to the Liquid Crystal Institute. ALCOM is a network of industry and university researchers that share resources to advance the technology associated with liquid crystal materials and manufacturing technology.
 Crystaloid's position as an ALCOM partner allows the company to tap into the resources of ALCOM sponsor universities Kent State University, Case Western Reserve University and the University of Akron. Crystaloid is one of 15 companies in the United States associated with the ALCOM consortium, which has also been designated as a Science and Technology Center by the National Science Foundation, the only such center in Ohio.
 Crystaloid in particular will work within the consortium to develop sophisticated computer modeling techniques in designing new displays. Yuan says he will explore and experiment with various parameters of LCDs, including various cell thicknesses, liquid crystal materials, polarizer materials, and retardation films to use in current and future LCDs.
 "With the data this will provide to us, we expect to cut our product development lead times in half," said Yuan.
 The Institute at Kent State is a world-renowned research facility in liquid crystal technology, the only such center in the country devoted solely to basic and applied research on liquid crystals. The institute was established in 1965 by Dr. Glenn H. Brown and is the source of numerous patented advancements in LCD products and technology.
 Crystaloid is a leading manufacturer and supplier of liquid crystal displays for commercial and avionics applications. Located in Hudson, Ohio, the company is known for specialized, custom-designed display engineering of twisted nematic, supertwist nematic and dichroic display technology.
