We design a dual-view liquid crystal display (DVLCD) which display two different images in the left and right viewing directions simultaneously. The main-pixel of the DVLCD comprises the right sub-pixels (RSPs) and the left sub-pixels (LSPs). The LCs in the RSPs and the LSPs have the opposite rotation directions, which are controlled by the inclined electric fields provided by the patterned electrodes. Addressing the RSPs and LSPs with the voltages having different polarities effectively decreases the maximum operation voltage of the DVLCD. The proposed DVLCD is free of the complicate multiple-step rubbing and shadow mask treatments, and hence has the advantages of low cost and easy fabrication.
