Paper Abstract

We investigated V-shaped switching in ferroelectric liquid crystal (FLC) mixture. Using standard, symmetrical preparation of the LC cells we obtained texture called 'two- domain texture.' In our opinion an appearance of this texture is related to surface electroclinic effect. We proposed to use non-symmetrical treatment of alignment surfaces. Textures obtained in this way are much uniform than the previous ones. The paper presents the results of theoretical investigations and experimental work.
