Determination of Director Profile in the Vertical Alignment Nematic Liquid Crystal Cell by the Full Leaky Guided Mode Technique
By means of the full leaky guided mode technique, the transmittance of the full leaky waveguide geometry which consists of pyramid, matching fluid of refractivity, the vertical alignment nematic liquid crystal cell are investigated experimentally. The experimental curves with different voltages between polarization-conserving transmittance Tss and the internal angle (the angle of incidence for which light is incident on the vertical alignment liquid crystal cell) are obtained. Comparing these experimental curves with the theoretical curves obtained from multi-layer optics theory, the director profile of vertical alignment nematic liquid crystal cell for different voltages is determined.
