Abstract
The orientational and dynamic behavior of liquid crystal molecules on the alignment layer surfaces of liquid crystal display (LCD) devices is crucial to their performance, but there are only a few methods of experimentally elucidating the interactions between the liquid crystals and the alignment layers. Inspired by the natural and technical similarities between membrane proteins in lipid bilayers and liquid crystals in LCDs, we employed solid-state NMR methodologies originally developed for the study of membrane proteins in lipid bilayers for the in-situ analysis of liquid crystal display panels. In this article, we present a home-built 500 MHz narrowbore (NB) 19F-13C double resonance solid-state NMR probe with a flat-square coil and the first application of this probe for the in-situ analysis of LCD panel samples.
