Abstract

Optically compensated bend (OCB) mode liquid crystal display (LCDs) require an initial transition from a splay alignment to a bend alignment before operation. We clarified in the previous paper that the twist disclination acted as a nucleus of the transition and also clarified the condition to form the nucleus of transition. In this paper, the transition was successfully induced by forming the nucleus of transition in an OCB cell using partial rubbing treatments or the micro protuberance.
