Abstract

A polarization-independent liquid crystal (LC) gel that uses in-plane switching (IPS) electrodes was demonstrated. The electrodes were in both substrates and the electric field was in the longitudinal direction. It was found that without voltage, the LC gel was cleared due to homogeneous LC alignment. The results show that an IPS LC gel was a broadband device and had a wide viewing angle and a relatively fast response time.
