Abstract

In this paper we report on the electro-optic effect exhibited by a bent core liquid crystal (BCLC) under an applied dc electric field. We found that the molecules of the material under study are aligned parallel to the rubbing direction of the alignment layer made from polyimide promoting planar alignment. High quality dark state was found in the experimental cells with small cell gap (about 2μm) This fact is explained with a model taking into account the reorientation behavior of the molecules under an applied dc electric field.
