Description
  • We have discovered an optically uniform type of domain that occurs in twisted nematic (TN) cells that are constructed from substrates chemically patterned with stripes via microcontact printing of self-assembled monolayers; such domains do not occur in TN cells constructed from uniform substrates. In such a cell, the azimuthal anchoring at the substrates is due to the elastic anisotropy of the liq... read more
