The control of liquid crystal alignment is of critical importance to the electro-optic performance of a liquid crystal display. Recently a new alignment method was discovered. Instead of the conventional buffing technique, polarized light is employed to treat the polymer alignment layer on the substrate of the display cell for the control of liquid crystal orientation. This non-contact method of aligning liquid crystals offers unique possibilities for display cell repair or reconfiguration after cell assembly. In addition, novel liquid crystal phase devices can be realized for use in optical processing.
