[LCT2-2] Fountain (PE-FFS) Technology for Wide Viewing Angle LCD

Lachezar Komitov1, *Mohammed Ibn-Elhaj1 (1. HighVisTec GmbH(Switzerland))

Perforated electrode, fountain fringe fields, wide azimuthal viewing angle

A new pixel electrode structure for generating fringe field switching (FFS), which contains holes, is suggested. Such pixel perforated electrode (PE) with circular holes results in azimuthally degenerated switching of the liquid crystal molecules around the holes and thus enables the generation of images with 360° viewing angle and constant contrast.
