DISPLAY PANEL AND LCD PANEL AND LCD APPARATUS USING THE SAME

HKC Corporation Limited, ...

1. A display panel, comprising:a first substrate;
a plurality of pixel units, farmed on the first substrate;
a protective layer, formed on the first substrate, wherein the protective layer has different thicknesses in each of the pixel units so that at least two transparent regions having different thicknesses are formed in each of the pixel unit; and
a transparent electrode layer, formed on the transparent regions having different thicknesses of the protective layer,
wherein each of the pixel units has a plurality of regions with different penetration rates,
wherein the plurality of regions with different penetration rates are classified into at least three types of topography depths with different gradients and a pixel structure of the plurality of regions is divided into an inner-layer rectangle, a middle-layer rectangle, and an outer-layer triangle or rectangle according to the at least three types of topography depths with different gradients, the plurality of regions are covered by the transparent electrode layer, and a slit design is reserved on the transparent electrode layer.
