Paper Abstract

The novel approach to the thresholdless hysteresis free switching is described. The key parameters for this mode are capacitance of the alignment/insulating layers and conductivity of the FLCs. The influence of the chemical structure of FLC on the performance of the V-shape mode is discussed. Utilizing this new approach, we constructed a cell with an inversion frequency around 1 kHz and the saturation voltage less than 4V.
