Paper Abstract

Monte Carlo Metropolis simulations of electro-optical phenomena in nematic liquid crystals (NLC) proposed in papers[1, 2] are used to calculate the profiles of an inhomogeneous ordering of NLC molecules in twisted nematic systems. The important role of low anchoring forces is clearly demonstrated. The dependence of transmission of light propagating through a twisted NLC cell on applied electric field and light wavelength generalizes known result[3] for an infinitely strong anchoring.
