Title: Two-domain in-plane switching mode LCD

Abstract: An in-plane switching mode liquid crystal display (IPS-LCD). A plurality of lengthwise-extending common electrodes are formed in each pixel area, and each common electrode has a curved or zigzag profile. A plurality of lengthwise-extending pixel electrodes are formed in each pixel area, and each pixel electrode has a curved or zigzag profile. The pixel electrodes are disposed in the intervals between the common electrodes, and two adjacent pixel and common electrodes form a subpixel area. Liquid crystal molecules are positioned within each sub-pixel area. The two adjacent pixel electrode and common electrodes within each sub-pixel area are not parallel to each other, and thus a gradient in-plane electric field is generated therebetween.
