A three-step method was developed to fabricate the obliquely tilted discotic negative birefringence phase compensation films. Model fitting reveals that the tilt angle of the discotic directors is about 46° from surface normal. The total phase retardation value of the film can be controlled by the discotic layer thickness. These asymmetric phase retardation films are useful for widening the viewing angle of a liquid crystal display device.
