Abstract
Homeotropically aligned liquid crystal (LC) cell with different area electr odes to produce oblique electric field has been fabricated and characterize d. Four domain structure is successfully obtained as a simulated result and the LC cell shows wide viewing angle characteristics. Its dynamic process on applying electric field consists of two steps, the fast step where the L C molecules fall down to the substrate and the slow step where the LC molec ules change their azimuthal direction. Introducing a black reset pulse whic h makes the slow process invisible will give favorable effects on both the response speed and motion picture images.
