Tony Davey studied Chemistry at UCL and gained a BSc in 1962 and a PhD in high resolution UV spectroscopy in 1966. He then moved to Standard Telecommunications Laboratories in Harlow to work on metal diffusion in thin films. He worked in a variety of fields and joined the Displays group in 1979, working on electrochromic displays for one year and then moving into looking at liquid crystal electro-optic effects until 1994 when he joined the Photonics Group at Cambridge.

His current interests are:

  • Bistable smectic A displays,
  • Plastic displays, and
  • High speed nematic liquid crystals.
