Abstract

A liquid crystal display comprising a common front electrode on one side and a multiplicity of individual electrodes on the other side of a cell, formed between plates and filled with a nematic liquid crystal in which is dissolved a pleochroic dye, has an anisotropic conductor plate located between the sets of electrodes with electrical connections between the surfaces thereof. The display comprises a transparent front plate 1 of glass onto which is deposited a continuous layer of a conducting material 3, and a rear plate 2, which may be transparent or opaque, onto which is deposited a rectilinear array of individual electrodes 4. The common electrode 3 is transparent, and the individual electrodes 4 are transparent or reflective, depending on the nature of the rear plate 2.
