Abstract:

We numerically study the dynamic process of transitions among textures in bistable cholesteric reflective displays, and analyze the effects of the parameters surface anchoring, applied field, cell thickness, pitch and elastic constants. Our result shows that fast homeotropic-planar transition, essential in order to use cholesteric liquid crystals in video rate operations, can be achieved using cells with homeotropic anchoring.
