The model of the rotational diffusion of the azo-dye molecules under the action of polarized uv light was used to explain the formation of the photoinduced order in azo-dye layers. We consider both the approximations of negligible and strong molecular interaction during the process of the reorientation under the field of a polarized light. We constructed an(More)
The photo-induced alignment of liquid crystal onto a photochemical stable azo dye film is studied for the liquid crystal display (LCD) applications. The photo-aligning of azo dye takes place due to the pure reorientation of the molecular absorption oscillators perpendicular to the UV-light polarization. The order parameters S=-0.4 (80% of the maximum(More)
A novel photoaligned twisted nematic liquid crystal display (TN-LCD) cell is fabricated by one-step illumination with oblique nonpolarized UV light of an empty cell with azo-dye layers coated on indium tin oxide (ITO) substrates. If the incident angle is sufficiently large (>75), the p-polarization of the light is more pronounced for the bottom azo-dye(More)
A novel liquid crystal (LC) photoalignment method, based on a super thin azo dye molecular layer is proposed. The basic idea of this method is to form a very neat textile knitwear and uniform alignment by azo dye layer without spin coating and rubbing processes. The thickness of the alignment layer is smaller than 3 nm, which is much thinner than(More)
