We propose a new type of display called Mobile Fine Particle Display (MFPD). The display is carried out by moving fine particles mixed with nematic liquid crystal, which are then applied to the electric field. The voltage dependence of mobile speed of particles, which is the basic properties of the MFPD, were measured, when material type and particle size of it were changed. The mobile speed appears to change more with a difference in particle size than a difference in material of particles. And, the behavior of the particles in the cell with the different electrode pattern was observed.
