Abstract

A compartmentalized multidomain alignment state of a layer of liquid crystal display is achieved using an ultrathin, highly transparent, and ultrafast-responsive alignment layer fabricated by a simple method. The ultrathin alignment layer consists of a self-assembled oligomer layer of poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) formed by utilizing the oligomers that diffuse out from a PDMS elastomer stamp during a contact printing process.
