Title: Floating electrode switching liquid crystal display

Abstract: A floating electrode switching liquid crystal display (FES-LCD). A plurality of liquid crystal molecules held between the first substrate and the second substrate, and the liquid crystal molecules are aligned to a first direction. A plurality of transverse-extending gate lines and lengthwise-extending signal lines formed on the first substrate to define a plurality of pixel areas arranging in a matrix form. A plurality of pixel electrodes and floating electrodes formed on the first substrate, the pixel electrodes and the floating electrodes are positioned within the pixel areas, and being arranged to a second direction. A common electrode layer formed on the second substrate. The pixel electrodes and the floating electrodes are separated in the same plane, and the first direction and the second direction are intersected with an angle .theta..
