Title
(EN) DISPLAY SCREEN WITH ACTIVE MATRIX
(FR) ECRAN DE VISUALISATION A MATRICE ACTIVE
Abstract
(EN)
The invention concerns a display screen with active matrix comprising first and second transparent substrates enclosing a crystal liquid material, at least one counter electrode, pixel electrodes(1) in lines and in columns, data lines (3), perpendicular selection lines (2), control devices for connecting the lines to the pixel electrodes, the pixel electrodes being controlled such that the electrodes connected to a common selection line have the same polarity while, for two adjacent selection lines the polarity is reversed, the pixel electrodes being located in a first plane while the other elements are located in a second plane distanced from the first plane, and a transparent mass plane being located between the two planes. Moreover, the mass plane has a structure such that at least the part found between two pixel electrodes of same polarity is recessed (7). The invention is applicable to LCD.

La présente invention concerne un écran de visualisation à matrice active. Cet écran comporte des premier et second substrats transparents enserrant un matériau à cristal liquide, au moins une contre-électrode, des électrodes de pixel (1) en lignes et en colonnes, des lignes de données (3), des lignes de sélection (2) perpendiculaires, des dispositifs de commande pour connecter les lignes de données aux électrodes de pixel, les électrodes de pixel étant commandées de telle sorte que les électrodes reliées à une même ligne de sélection sont de même polarité tandis que, pour deux lignes de sélection adjacentes la polarité est inversée, les électrodes de pixel se trouvant dans un premier plan alors que les autres éléments se trouvent dans un deuxième plan espacé du premier plan, et un plan de masse transparent se trouvant entre les deux plans. De plus, le plan de masse a une structure telle qu'au moins la partie se trouvant entre deux électrodes de pixel de même polarité est évidée (7). L'invention s'applique au LCD.
