Abstract : Initial work was performed on the preparation of poly(p-phenylene vinylene) and poly(p-phenylene) alignment layers for twisted nematic liquid crystal displays. Soluble precursor amphiphilic polymers, spread at the gas-water interface, were aligned during Langmuir-Blodgett deposition. The structure or the precursor multilayers has been investigated before and after curing of the multilayers to the desired polymers. Initial tests have indicated that the precursor multilayers are good alignment layers for liquid crystal displays.
