Abstract

We investigate the electro-optical response of an in-plane switching (IPS) liquid crystal (LC) device, which is fabricated using the two-easy-axes substrate. The two-easy-axes substrate is fabricated by slightly rubbing the substrate in two different directions. Experimental results indicate that the IPS LC device fabricated using the two-easy-axes substrate has a lower threshold voltage and a faster response time than the traditional IPS LC device, which is fabricated using the unidirectionally rubbed substrate. The weak anchoring condition and the anchoring strengths in two different rubbing directions on the substrate contribute to the fast electro-optical response of the IPS LC device.
