Paper Abstract

In the inplane-switching (IPS) mode an electric field is applied to the liquid crystals along the direction that is parallel to the plane of the substrates with interdigital electrodes. The threshold behavior and response characteristics of the liquid crystals in the IPS mode were studied by Oh-e et al. Assuming uniform electric field and strong director anchoring at the cell boundaries. We found an electric field profile of the electric field in the IPS mode. We found there exists an optimal ratio between the cell thickness, electrode width and electrode gap which corresponds to minimal value of the threshold voltage.
