Control of morphology and alignment of liquid crystal droplets in molecular-aligned polymer for substrate-free displays

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

We have proposed composite films composed of a molecular-aligned polymer and liquid crystal (LC) for substrate-free liquid crystal displays with high-contrast images. We successfully controlled the molecular alignment of the LC and formed molecular-aligned LC droplets in the polymer by controlling the fluidity of the LC/monomer mixture and the curing rate of the monomer.
