Paper Abstract

Liquid crystal cells with a radial molecular orientation is proposed using a UV curable liquid crystal material. A radially and homogeneously aligned LC cell (RH-LC cell) and an LC cell with a radial molecular orientation on both substrates (RR-LC cell) are fabricated and their optical properties are investigated. A polarization converting function of the RH-LC cell and detecting function of the polarization direction in the dye doped RR-LC cell are confirmed. Furthermore, an optical alignment of liquid crystal on the PVC surface is demonstrated using RH-LC cell.
