• A revolution in imaging and photonics.

  • Our offer

    Orthocone’s business idea is to develop a new liquid crystal technology that will offer significant improved performance in future display applications.


    Our liquid crystals are 100 times faster than the traditional ones used today.


    We offer a patented technology meeting the needs of the display market.

    Fast response time will improve image quality but it will also make displays much more environmentally friendly and more cost efficient to produce.

      Stabilization of antiferroelectric liquid crystals

      Filed July 8 2011

      Protected region(s): USA

      The patent covers process technologies that enable large cell gaps by utilizing novel usage of polymer stabilization.

      US 2013/0107150

      Liquid crystal device and a method for writing grey scale

      Filed July 8 2011

      Protected region(s): USA

      Apart from analog grey scale, which is supported by OAFLC technology, the ultra-fast switching also enables grey scale to be produced in the time domain. It is covered by this patent.
