Abstract

Although reflective bistable twisted nematic (RBTN) displays have potential in low-power-consumption applications, to achieve the optimum conditions for both bistable states simultaneously remains a challenge. We use a geometrical method based on the Poincaré sphere representation to obtain the optimum conditions that can simultaneously satisfy both bistable states for a RBTN structure. With this method, the optimum conditions can be obtained analytically and the operation modes can be clearly visualized and better understood.
