Paper Abstract

We proposed a surface treatment technology for improving the performance of the liquid crystal displays (LCDs). The alignment surfaces are modified with the reactive mesogen (RM) which are mixed with alignment layers and directionally polymerized along the LC directors during UV curing process. Since the polymerized RMs within the alignment layers could control and memorize the specific pretilt and azimuthal angles of liquid crystal molecules at the specific panel region, we could improve the display performance such as response time and wide viewing angle with multi-domains and design the new LC modes.
