The strong influence of the complex reverse flow phenomenon on the dynamic temperature behavior of vertically aligned liquid crystal displays (VA-LCDs) has been demonstrated. Good agreement was obtained between theoretical and experimental switching profiles over a wide temperature range (2575°C). This was achieved using the Leslie–Ericksen theory in a one-dimensional model with material viscosity coefficients obtained from an improved estimation procedure. Such accurate numerical simulations can have a large impact on further improvements of VA-LCDs (e.g., the development of temperature-compensating driving schemes).
