Abstract

This paper presents a new method of forming multidomain liquid-crystal (LC) structures, using surface-active substances. This method is used to form the following multidomain structures: homeotrope-hybrid, homeotrope-twist, hybrid-planar, hybrid-hybrid, homeotrope-planar, twist-hybrid, and twist-homeotrope. The results of theoretical and experimental studies of the electrooptic properties of these structures are presented. Possible applications of multidomain LC structures in optical-information display devices are discussed.
