Abstract

Optically compensated bend (OCB) mode liquid crystal displays (LCDs), which have fast response, require an initial transition from a splay alignment to a bend alignment before operation. We clarified that the twist disclination act as a nucleus of the transition and also clarified the condition to form the nucleus. Based on this result, the transition was successfully induced by forming the right- and left-handed twist alignments by using partial rubbing treatment or micro protuberances.
