If you are removing statements from text, you better explain it in Talk. Otherwise how can we distinguish a serious person from a random vandal? wrote: Transparency is NOT an instrinsic property of TFTs. There is some recent research on Transparent TFTs based on Zink-Oxide, but In fact the TFTs in your TFT display are not transparent..)

OK. But how can you explain this (deleted) statement about transparency found in some other texts as well. Are some of them transparent? Were the first TFTs transparent? Is transparency a goal? (Actually, I start recalling that conductors are easily made transparent. Is it correct?) If TFT transparency is a common misunderstanding, it makes sense to discuss it here.

By the way, I noticed you contribute from different IP addresses. Would you like to register yourself, so that it will easier both for you to track your own contributions and for us to know a bit whom are we talking to? Mikkalai 22:44, 1 Jun 2004 (UTC)
The TFT is just a small part of a pixel and is often oblique. This is illustrated here: Probably the entire entry should be rewritten. I may look into that once i find some time, and yes i will register too.

Att: Removed spam-links[edit]

Removed links, because they pointed to a companies site and their mailing list. The site offered consulting services in the TFT area. This is obviously spam and should not be tolerated. The companies name was o*cad.

Expand please[edit]

Someone add more information! Thanks!!! -- 08:21, 6 April 2006 (UTC)

All panels[edit]

Saying all color panels use this technology is dubious. The mobile phone I recently purchased clearly has a passive matrix panel in it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Grock2 (talkcontribs) 17:54, 21 September 2008 (UTC)


"As of 2008[update], many color LCD TVs and monitors use this technology." - I believe there is not a single LCD TV that doesn't use TFT.

The characteristics of a silicon-based TFT depend on the silicon's crystalline state ?[edit]

Then how can semiconductor layer be made up of amorphous silicon ?
