Paper Abstract

We studied electro-optical characteristics of the liquid crystal (LC) cell with weak planar anchoring of the director with bounding substrates. The weak surface anchoring let us to decrease the cell driving voltage. Moreover, because of the absence of the strong subsurface director deformations, the cell could operate in the Mauguin regime. Using these we proposed a new type of the LC switching mode--the in-plane sliding mode. We realized this mode in the LC cell comprising of one reference substrate with strong director anchoring and one photoaligning material-covered substrate with weak anchoring.
