A combined fringe and in-plane switching (FIS) mode single-cell-gap transflective display using blue-phase liquid crystal (BPLC) is proposed. The structure makes use of the space above the pixel electrodes of this FIS mode as reflective regions and the space between pixel electrodes as transmissive regions. The structure which can be optimized to balance the optical phase retardation between transmissive region and reflective region with simple fabrication process exhibits relatively high optical efficiency and well matched voltage of transmittance and reflectance curves.
