LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) is the name for the very thin screens that are often used in TVs, laptop screens and other flat monitors. They work by placing an electronically charged substance in between a pair of electrodes. By increasing and decreasing the current that passes through it different colours can be created. LCD screens will use up a lot less electricity as they function by blocking light, not emitting it like a CRT screen does.
