Abstract

Photo-induced alignments of liquid crystal molecules on alternate self-assembled films containing azobenzene were evaluated using the in-situ attenuated total reflection (ATR) measurement. The ATR properties due to the excitation of the surface plasmon polariton (SPP) were observed, and sensitivity changed with re-orientations of the LC molecules by means of irradiation with linearly polarized visible light. The results show that the direction of the in-plane alignments of the LC molecules are perpendicular to the polarized direction of the irradiation light and could be controlled by the direction of the polarized light.
