Paper Abstract

All kinds of LCDs are generally consisted of planar liquid crystal media, which are sandwiched between glass or plastic sheets. In this paper, the LC molecular conformations and their surface alignments in LCDs are systematically introduced, and the methods of LC surface alignment and their mechanisms are discussed. Furthermore the relationship between the EO performance of LCDs, such as TN, STN, Ch-N phase change, FLC, and PD-LCDs and the surface LC alignment is discussed.
