Paper Abstract

A non-rubbing process suitable for active matrix LCDs based on a photo-dimerized monolayer (PDML) has been developed. The PDML yields defect free alignment of nematic liquid crystal molecules. The electro-optic characteristics of LCDs fabricated using the photo-dimerized layers are shown to be comparable to those of a rubbed polyimide alignment layer.
