Abstract

We have investigated the relationship between the polar anchoring strength and surface ordering in a nematic liquid crystal on two kinds of weakly rubbed polyimide (PI) surfaces. The polar anchoring strength of 5CB on weakly rubbed PI surfaces, both with and without side chains, increases with rubbing strength and with decreasing temperature. The surface order parameter of 5CB on these surfaces increases with rubbing strength, suggesting that the polar anchoring strength on rubbed PI surfaces is related to the surface order parameter.
