Present-day displays are essentially linear optical elements to control light. Influx of ideas and approaches between display sciences and nonlinear optics is taking place recently. In the report, we discuss situations where achievements of nonlinear optics can be applied to the development of liquid crystal display principles. Particularly, we discuss new principles of control of the slope of director reorientation induced by electric fields, bistability in tilted electric fields, and photoinduced orientation.
