Abstract
We developed a novel twisted nematic (TN) liquid crystal display (LCD) having wide viewing angle characteristics through the reduction of the residual liquid crystal phase retardation at oblique angles using an embedded diffusing unit. Compared to a conventional TN panel, this embedded approach provides extended isocontrast contours by more than ±10 deg at a contrast ratio of 100:1 along the horizontal direction and a wide region free of grayscale inversion by a factor of 2 along the vertical direction. Moreover, the off-axis image distortions in our novel LCD are improved by 50% compared to those in a film-compensated TN LCD.
