  • Patent number: 5576867
    Abstract: An electro-optical display device comprising a liquid crystal layer achieves switching using an electric field component which is predominantly parallel to the surface of the liquid crystal layer. Low dependence of image contrast on viewing angle is achieved by selection of parameters including orientation angle .beta..sub.o and pretilt angle .alpha..sub.o of the liquid crystal molecules in the layer. For example, good results are achieved when<.beta..sub.o for liquid crystal molecules having negative dielectric anisotropy and < for molecules having positive dielectric anisotropy. Preferably, <
