Abstract

The optical response of the nematic liquid crystal confined between plates with strong homeotropic and weak planar anchoring (hybrid geometry) under the oscillatory shear has been investigated. Critical shear amplitude above that the director deviates from the planar orientation at the substrate with weak anchoring was found and the dependence of the tilt angle on the displacement amplitude was obtained. The anchoring strength and surface viscosity for the SiO-evaporated substrate was estimated.
