Abstract
Photosensitive polyimide containing 2-methoxy cinnamate was synthesized for photo-alignment layer of liquid crystals (LCs). 2-Methoxy cinnamic acid was confirmed photo-sensitive material by linearly polarized UV light. We studied that effect of polarized UV light on rubbed polyimide film. Anchoring energy of liquid crystal with aligning surface was measured. Irradiation of depolarized UV light on rubbed Polyimide film suppressed effective anchoring energy. Linearly polarized UV light on rubbed polyimide film controlled anchoring energy effectively. Polyimide film containing 2-methoxy cinnamate can control the photo-alignment layer easily due to its photo-sensitivity.
