dc.description.abstractThe surface molecular alignment in a sandwich cell showing V-shaped switching has been investigated using a photocontrolling method. The results indicate that the molecules on the rubbed surface are aligned parallel to the rubbing direction as in an open cell with an air?liquid crystal boundary. This alignment is due to strong in-plane anchoring, due to which the small twisted state appears along the cell thickness through intralayer molecular interaction.en
