dc.description.abstract Thin layers of obliquely (60° to normal) thermally evaporated SiOx lead to homeotropic alignment of a nematic liquid crystal (LC) having negative dielectric anisotropy. Under application of an ac voltage the director, as characterized by the fully leaky waveguide technique, is found to realign with a voltage controlled tilt along the evaporation direction. This behavior is in complete contrast with that of a LC having positive dielectric anisotropy and may have important implications for modern LC display technology. en_GB
