Abstract

Energy-efficient display has been drawing much attention in recent years due to the prevailing of mobile devices as well as the rising environmental concerns. A chiral nematic system with appropriately configured pre-tilted angle and pitch length is capable of switching between the twist-like and homeotropic-like states with the merit of bistability. Introducing dichroic dyes into this system, we demonstrated a bistable scheme of liquid-crystal display without the need of polarizers.
