We propose a vertical alignment (VA) liquid crystal (LC) device with reduced off-axis gamma shift. We can form a multi-domain structure by simply designing the electrode structure . By applying a different bias voltage to each sub-pixel, we obtained a threshold voltage difference of 2.4 V, without any complex manufacturing process. We confirmed that the off-axis gamma shift can be significantly reduced by the proposed method. We believe that the proposed method can be easily applied to reduce the off-axis gamma shift in vertical alignment LC devices.
