Abstract

A nematic display with three electrodes and double fringing fields is proposed. Both top and bottom substrates have pixel and common electrodes to generate complementary fringing fields for achieving high transmittance. This mode exhibits submillisecond gray-to-gray response time and high contrast ratio. The effect of pixel misalignment on transmittance is discussed.
