  • Patent number: 8780308
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a pixel structure switchable between a wide viewing angle mode and a narrow viewing angle mode. The pixel structure includes a first substrate, a first and a second gate lines, a data line, a pixel unit, a second substrate and a display medium. The pixel unit includes a first active element, a second active element, a first sub-pixel electrode, a second sub-pixel electrode, and a common electrode. The first and second sub-pixel electrodes are respectively electrically connected to the first and second active elements. The common electrode is opposite to the first and second sub-pixel electrodes. The second substrate has a counter electrode disposed on a surface facing the first substrate. The counter electrode is corresponding to the first sub-pixel electrode.
