Characteristic dark domains are observed around the tips of electrodes in in-plane switching-mode liquid crystal displays. In these domains, the liquid crystal molecules rotate in the reverse direction because of the radially distorted electric field. We found that these domains extend toward the central area when a higher voltage is applied. This article discusses these reverse-rotational domains. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.
