Abstract

A novel procedure to control the alignment of discotic liquid crystals (DLCs) based on the surface-assisted photoalignment technique is introduced. This procedure opens up ways to understand the detailed physical properties of DLC molecules, as well as to design novel optical and electrical devices.
