We have studied the optimal cell configuration for a fringe-field driven transflective liquid crystal display that exhibits high image quality. The cell is composed of two half-plate compensation films, liquid crystal, and two parallel polarizers in the transmissive region. Viewing angle characteristics of the device mainly depends on the orientation of the polarizer axis. The measured contrast ratio in an optimized configuration is greater than 5 in polar angles of over 50° in all directions and in those over 80° in certain azimuthal cross-sectional planes.
