Abstract
Based on the equivalence theorem of a unitary optical system. We proposed an analytical approach to characterize the cell parameters of a twisted nematic liquid crystal device (TNLCD) with full field resolution. The spatial distribution of three characteristic parameters of a TNLCD were measured by using a polarizer-sample-analyzer imaging ellipsometer, thus the untwisted phase retardation, cell thickness and twisted angle of a TNLCD can be directly calculated through the explicit expressions as a function of its characteristic parameters. The measured results are very close to the design values provided by TNLCD manufacture. This method shows that both the system setup and parameters calculating process are quite simple. It would be more helpful to characterize a TNLCD in the manufacturing process.
