Fringing field stretching of a pillared liquid crystal droplet

Abstract

We demonstrate a liquid crystal (LC) droplet whose surface profile could be deformed by a fringing field. In the voltage-off state, the LC droplet exhibits a pillared shape by touching both substrates. As the voltage increases, such a droplet could be stretched to a cone-like shape or thin film. For a 1.5 mm aperture LC droplet, its occupied area could be… (More)
