Abstract

The use of ferroelectric liquid crystals (FLC) materials and micro-polymers to develop a flexible display that is both tolerant to mechanical bending and capable of quick response times is discussed. The display device that contains two fine polymer structures of aligned fiber networks and lattice-shaped polymer walls is used to realize the flexible liquid crystal displays. A novel process for fabricating the composite film for flexible displays, is developed, which includes a two-step photopolymerization induced phase separation method of an FLC/monomer solution. The device's structure, operating principles, fabrication method and fundamental properties are also discussed.
