Vertically-aligned (VA) liquid crystal display device

Dispositif d'affichage à cristal liquide d'orientation verticale

Anzeigevorrichtung mit vertikal ausgerichtetem Flüssigkristall

Abstract

A liquid crystal display device is provided which comprises a liquid crystal panel in which a liquid crystal having a negative dielectric constant anisotropy is sandwiched between first and second substrates (91, 92), and at least one of said first and second substrates (91, 92) includes domain regulating means for regulating said liquid crystal to be oriented in a plurality of azimuths when a voltage is applied to said liquid crystal. The liquid crystal display device also comprises first and second polarizing plates (11, 15) placed both sides of said liquid crystal panel and at least one phase difference film (95), whose inplane dielectric constants n x and n y and dielectric constant n z in a direction of thickness thereof have the following relation: n x , n y ≥ n z (except n x = n y = n z ), which is placed in at least one of spaces between said liquid crystal panel and one of said first and second polarizing plates (11, 15) and between said liquid crystal panel and the other thereof.
