A blue-phase liquid crystal display (BP-LCD) with an in-plane switching (IPS) electrode and etched substrate for generating double-penetrating fringe fields is proposed. An etching depth of 1-2 mu m helps to lower the operating voltage by similar to 30%. This etched IPS BP-LCD also exhibits a wider viewing angle than the conventional one because of the created multi-domain structures in the etched areas. Physical mechanisms responsible for the observed phenomena are discussed.
