Active Matrix - Definition

Active Matrix is a type of Liquid Crystal Display (LCD), commonly used in laptop computers and thin computer monitors. The images on Active Matrix screens are created by laying diodes, or small semiconductors, over a grid of ultra-small wires. When a current passes through the diodes, they light up in many different colors, depending on the strength of the current. This allows for each pixel to be independently controlled, which then produces excellent color resolution.
