Title: Liquid crystal display including array of protrusions in a broken zigzag pattern all formed within area of light-shielding matrix

Abstract: A liquid crystal display mainly includes two substrates processed for vertical alignment and a liquid crystal having a negative dielectric constant anisotropy sealed between the two substrates. An array of slits is provided on pixel electrodes formed on one substrate. A light-shielding matrix and an array of protrusions is provided on the other substrate. Each of the first protrusions has a main body being arranged substantially in a zigzag pattern and in parallel to one another. The slits and the main bodies of the first protrusions are arranged alternately. The liquid crystal display is characterized in that the first protrusions have a plurality of breaks formed within the area of the light-shielding matrix.
