A wide-view transflective liquid crystal display (TR-LCD) using a single cell gap multidomain vertical alignment (MVA) cell is proposed. Unlike a conventional MVA which uses physical protrusions to form multidomain structures, our TR-LCD uses slit-induced longitudinal and fringe electric fields to generate multidomains. As a result, wide-view, high contrast ratio, and high transmittance are obtained. By varying the slit density in the transmissive and reflective regions, the optical path-length disparity between these regions can be balanced. Potential application of this TR-LCD for mobile displays is emphasized. (C) 2008 American Institute of Physics.
