LCD

(ēl′sē-dē′)
Short for liquid-crystal display. A low-power, flat-panel display used in many digital devices to display numbers or images. It is made up of a substance that is almost liquid, but also has a crystal structure like a solid, sandwiched between filtering layers of glass or plastic. When the device is turned on, the molecules of the "liquid crystal" twist so that they can either reflect or transmit light that falls on them to produce the number or image indicated by a computer.
