In accordance with the 2D Landau–de Gennes tensorial formalism, we investigated the influence of an applied electric field
parallel to the defect line on the position and structure of a nematic line defect with topological charge M = − 1/2 in a hybrid alignment nematic cell with different cell gaps d. A new type of surface order reconstruction occurs in the cell as
is increased. Regardless of d, two biaxial layers can be achieved near the top and bottom substrates of the cell with different
values. This process involves double eigenvalue exchange across the cell. However, the structural transition processes vary for different d values.
