Abstract(in Japanese) (See Japanese page)
Abstract(in English) For non-rubbing alignment method applicable to flexible liquid crystals (LCs), LC cells with a V-groove alignment layer by nano-imprint lithography (NIL) have investigated. The ultra-fine groove structure was fabricated from 200 nm line & space mold by atomically smooth surface using anisotropic etching of Si and transfer to poly(methyl methacrylate) . Obtained azimuthal anchoring energy of 3.9×10^-3 J/m^2 and contrast ratios of twisted nematic cell was 44:1.
