High-brightness relaxed-bend state in a pi cell stabilized by synchronized polymerization
The authors report a synchronized polymer-stabilization technique which can be used to stabilize the nonpermanent states in liquid crystal devices. In this paper, a relaxed-bend state in a pi cell which has a lifetime of only 80ms is observed and then stabilized by this proposed technique. After stabilizing, the pi cell is immune to undesirable recovery into the splay or twist states, and its optical contrast is much higher than that of the conventional polymer-stabilized pi cell.
