Abstract

An LCD (liquid crystal display) is comprised of liquid crystal material filled between transparent front and rear electrodes, aluminum electrode, transparent floating electrode, non-linear characteristic layer, rear electrode, and front and rear glass plates, as depicted in Fig. 1. Aluminum electrodes and rear electrodes are stripe shaped and run orthogonally with relation to each other to provide an X-Y matrix. Front electrode, insulating layer and non-linear layer are formed in flat continuous single layers. A voltage is selectively applied, as in Fig. 2, across the rear electrode and aluminum electrode, when both are selected. Then, it charges the capacitance produced between the Al electrode and discrete floating electrode across the insulating layer.
