Paper Abstract

The reverse distributions of the director in the cell with nematic liquid crystal at arbitrary easy axes direction and anchoring energy value are considered. The transformation of the director distribution in the lowest reverse orientation modes under the change of an anchoring strength on one of the alignment surfaces is studied. A structural orientation transition from the tilted orientation on this surface to a planar one is found to be at definite value of the anchoring parameters.
