Image sticking in liquid crystal display (LCD) is related to the residual direct current (DC) voltage (RDCV) on the cell and the dynamic response of the liquid crystal materials. According to the capacitance change of the liquid crystal cell under the DC bias, the saturated RDCV (SRDCV) can be obtained. The response time can be obtained by testing the optical dynamic response of the liquid crystal cell, thereby evaluating the image sticking problem. Based on this, the image sticking of vertical aligned nematic (VAN) LCD (VAN-LCD) with different cell thicknesses (3.8 μm and 11.5 μm) and different concentrations of γ-Fe2O3 nanoparticles (0.017 wt.%, 0.034 wt.%, 0.051 wt.%, 0.068 wt.%, 0.136 wt.%, 0.204 wt.%, and 0.272 wt.%) was evaluated, and the effect of nano-doping was analyzed. It is found that the SRDCV and response time decrease firstly and then increase with the increase of the doping concentration of γ-Fe2O3 nanoparticles in the VAN cell. When the doping concentration is 0.034 wt.%, the γ-Fe2O3 nanoparticles can adsorb most of the free impurity ions in liquid crystal materials, resulting in 70% reduction in the SRDCV, 8.11% decrease in the decay time, and 15.49% reduction in the rise time. The results show that the doping of γ-Fe2O3 nanoparticles can effectively improve the image sticking of VAN-LCD and provide useful guidance for improving the display quality.
