Abstract

A transflective polymer-stabilized blue-phase liquid crystal display (BP-LCD) using an etched in-plane switching (IPS) structure is proposed. To balance the optical phase retardation between the transmissive <i>(T)</i>- and reflective <i>(R)</i>-regions, IPS electrodes are formed with the same dimensions in both <i>T</i>- and <i>R</i>-regions, and the substrate between the electrodes is etched for generating double-penetrating fringe fields only in the <i>T</i>-region. This display exhibits a reasonably wide viewing angle and well-matched voltage dependent transmittance and reflectance curves.
