Paper Abstract

The effect of the photoalignment on the electrooptic characteristics of polymer stabilized ferroelectric liquid crystal displays (FLCDs) exhibiting V-shaped switching and those of FLCDs exhibiting half-V switching are reported and discussed. Photoalignment technique and hybrid alignment, which is done by combining photoalignment and rubbing, are shown to be useful for fabricating zig-zag defect-free FLCDs and improving the electrooptic characteristics of FLCDs-SSFLCDs, V-F-LCDs, and H-V-FLCDs- especially in the reduction of operation voltage.
