Abstract

A hysteresis-free blue-phase LCD with low operation voltage, high contrast ratio, and submillisecond response time is demonstrated using a vertical field switching cell. Some remaining challenges, such as wider blue-phase temperature range, lower operation voltage, and higher voltage holding ratio remain to be overcome before widespread applications can be realized.
