Abstract: The switching behaviors of dual frequency liquid crystals (DFLC) in a bistable chiral tilted-homeotropic nematic (BHN) LC cell are simulated and compared with the observed results. This cell can be switched between tilted-homeotropic state and twisted state under the applied voltage as low as 5 V. The reason for the low switching voltage is attributed to the dielectric anisotropy character of DFLC. The analysis also shows that the switching wave form accelerates the switching behaviors of the directors which results in faster response in BHN LC cell. (c) 2006 American Institute of Physics.
