Title: Threshold behavior and electro-optical properties of twisted nematic layers with weak anchoring in the tilt and twist angle
Issue Date: 1991 Zeitschriftenartikel Journal of applied physics 70 (1991), S. 4211-4216. URL
Abstract: Analytical and numerical calculations of threshold behavior and electro-optical characteristics in twisted chiral nematic layers are presented, when weak anchoring in the tilt and twist angle of the director is assumed. An analytical expression for the effective twist angle and the Freedericksz threshold voltage is derived. In cells with bistabilities, we investigate the influence of the anchoring parameters and device parameters on the width of the hysteresis. Using the 4X4-matrix formalism of Berreman [J. Opt. Soc. Am. 62, 502 (1972)], we demonstrate the influence of the weak anchoring on the transmission-versus-voltage characteristic.
