Abstract: We show that to every $ p$-divisible group over a $ p$-adic ring one can associate a display by crystalline Dieudonné theory. For an appropriate notion of truncated displays, this induces a functor from truncated Barsotti-Tate groups to truncated displays, which is a smooth morphism of smooth algebraic stacks. As an application we obtain a new proof of the equivalence between infinitesimal $ p$-divisible groups and nilpotent displays over $ p$-adic rings, and a new proof of the equivalence due to Berthelot and Gabber between commutative finite flat group schemes of $ p$-power order and Dieudonné modules over perfect rings.
