DYK nomination[edit]

Was he primarily a physicist?[edit]

Brody sounds more like an electrical engineer. I have added him to both categories. RockMagnetist (talk) 02:09, 15 October 2011 (UTC)

I knew peter well during his Panel Vision days - he was a physicists who also had some business smarts - what we see today in LCD displays for ipads and smart phones was his vision back in 1984 ... he was a brilliant human that created a new industry, and led to a new smartphone panet.

Tragedy was he told me no-way he could raise capital to execute his dream (color TFT's) in USA so he was going to start to consult for Japanese - rest is history. Good book here about how trajectory for things that a good physicists sees as just time and money, and VC's financial QTR to QTR see as too long high risk horizon. Peter was one of the great treasures of my life .. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jkmstevens (talkcontribs) 22:32, 9 June 2014 (UTC)

Further sources?[edit]

More potential sources?

  • In this New World Encyclopedia, which is a fork of Wikipedia, they say "In the United States in 1972, T. Peter Brody produced the first active-matrix liquid crystal display panel". I am not sure if this source is classed as reliable. The authors do say they rewrote the Wikipedia entry - "Liquid Crystal Display". New World Encyclopedia. 29 August 2008. Retrieved 15 October 2011. In the United States in 1972, T. Peter Brody produced the first active-matrix liquid crystal display panel 
  • This Hart, J A. et al (1999) well referenced article seems to be a reasonable summary of work in this area. Note however that this article has a no-cite no-quote tag in it (unless permission is sought and granted) - Hart, Jeffrey A. "A History of Electroluminescent Displays". Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Retrieved 15 October 2011.  Unknown parameter |coauthors= ignored (|author= suggested) (help)
  • This book appeared in a google.co.uk search of the term "the times t Peter Brody" (I was trying to see Brody had an obit. in The Times). Page 148 contains a quote from Brody offering an analysis of TFT vs MOS technology - Bassett, Ross Knox (2002). To the digital age: research labs, start-up companies, and the rise of MOS technology. JHU Press. pp. 148, 395. ISBN 9780801868092. 

I believe I have properly formatted the above references so if you wish to use them, just insert in the article with ref tags around them. Of course you will need permission from the author of the second source --Senra (Talk) 13:02, 15 October 2011 (UTC)

problem with lead citation?[edit]

The lead concludes with an awkward statement that he introduced a term "to the literature." It's such an odd phrase. What is "the literature." Either way, the citation doesn't seem to support the statement. 842U (talk) 11:44, 26 October 2011 (UTC)

I've changed the wording. The 1975 paper (which you removed from the citations) is the first instance of the term in print. You need to read the whole paper, not just the abstract. --Cbrody (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 23:42, 26 October 2011 (UTC).
