A time-multiplexed dual-view display device using a blue phase liquid crystal is proposed. In this design, a vertical field switching blue phase liquid crystal display (VFS-BPLCD) panel is used to achieve high transmittance and fast response. Combined with a directional backlight module, this device can present two different images to viewers sequentially. The proposed device has advantage in full spatial resolution.
