Investigation of the bend transition in Pi-cell devices

Abstract:

The Pi-cell is known to have the fastest response time amongst commercialised nematic LCD applications due to the bend configuration. The Bend configuration can be obtained when a high voltage is applied to a Pi-cell initially treated to have a splay configuration, but transition is complex because the splay and the bend states are topologically not identical. Although two possible mechanisms (anchoring breaking and order reconstruction) can explain the bend transition, it is still difficu...
