Abstract

Surface wrinkling method is used to fabricate a 1-dimensional nanostructure. The structure is transferred to an ultraviolet cured polymer which is used as an alignment layer. The anisotropic geometry serves as a guide for aligning liquid crystal molecules uniformly without defects. The TN-LC cell showed a successful LC switching, with a response time of 20.5 ms, and a threshold voltage of 2.00 V. It also exhibited high thermal stability above 180°C. The proposed UV-cured polymers with 1-D nano wrinkle geometry can be a candidate for alternative alignment techniques, for advanced liquid crystal devices with high thermal budgets.
