Abstract

An enhanced protrusion electrode is proposed for both transmissive and transflective blue-phase liquid crystal displays. For transmissive displays, the new design increases transmittance while keeping a low operating voltage. For transflective displays, it exhibits high transmittance and reflectance and a well-matched gamma curve with a single cell gap.
