    Shorter switching times in liquid crystal devices are traditionally achieved by raising the switching voltage. However, one of the limitations in multiplexing the boundary layer display is the necessity to keep the rms switching voltage Vs on the not-yet-selected pels below a critical threshold...

    Electron beam irradiation studies on 4′-pentyl-4-cyanobiphenyl (5CB) have been carried out. Dielectric measurements demonstrate that even a low level of irradiation (beyond a critical dose of ∼6 kGy) results in a dramatic increase in the transverse component of the dielectric...

    In this paper properties of nematic liquid crystals aligned on polyimide surfaces exposed to a low-energy Ar ion beam are investigated. We studied how the pretilt angle of a liquid crystal cell is affected by ion-beam conditions, such as the energy of the incident ions, the angle of incidence,...
