Liquid Crystal (LC)

LC stands for Liquid Crystal (sometimes also referred to as liquid crystal fluid or LC fluid, although technically redundant).  The defining thing about Liquid Crystals used in displays is that the polarization of the fluid can be changed by an electric field. This changing polarization can be used to make a dark or clear area turn on or off on a display.
