Abstract

A new method of switching mode in AFLC cell is proposed for faster switching time and higher contrast ratio. In this mode the ″dark″ state is obtained by applying negative full voltage while the ″bright″ state is achieved by applying positive full voltage to the cell. The switching time is reduced to 100 <TEX>$mutextrm{s}$</TEX> for the cell whose switching time is 22 ms when operated in conventional mode. The contrast ratio is also improved vastly with this method. The possibility of achieving gray scale was shown in this mode of operation.
