Abstract
We report a method for the preparation of multi-domain liquid crystal (LC) alignment layers on polyimide (PI) surfaces using inkjet printed micro-bars. The substrates of PI alignment films with micro-bars are assembled in crossed fashion to form a two-dimensional lattice to enable a fringe-field-like structure and thus, the multi-domain LC alignment. A LC cell with twisted nematic (TN) and electrically-controlled birefringence (ECB) domains can be obtained when the cells are assembled according to the printing directions of the printed PI layers. Electro-optical properties of such cells are studied. The obtained multi-domain structures can be used to improve the viewing angle of TN displays.
