Wall-shaped electrodes for reducing the operation voltage of polymer-stabilized blue phase liquid crystal displays
Abbreviated Journal Title
J. Phys. D-Appl. Phys.
Polymer-stabilized blue phase liquid crystal displays based on the Kerr effect are emerging due to their submillisecond response time, wide view and simple fabrication process. However, the conventional in-plane switching device exhibits a relatively high operating voltage because the electric fields are restricted in the vicinity of the electrode surface. To overcome this technical barrier, we propose a partitioned wall-shaped electrode configuration so that the induced birefringence is uniform between electrodes throughout the entire cell gap. Consequently, the operating voltage is reduced by similar to 2.8x with two transistors. The responsible physical mechanisms are explained.
