Paper Abstract

Electro-optic properties of thin liquid crystal cells are found to deviate significantly from those of thick cells. Results on the liquid crystal thickness dependent phase retardation, effective birefringence, threshold voltage, and decay time of thin E-7 cells are presented. A simple model which is based on the partially disordered surface layers is developed to explain the observed phenomena.
