FIG. 1.

(Color online) The schematic representation of the fabrication of patterned silica surfaces by soft embossing method.

FIG. 2.

(Color online) The optical micrographs of liquid crystal alignment on the patterned silica surfaces taken between crossed polarizers. [(a) and ] groove width, [(b) and ] groove width, and [(c) and ] groove width. All the micrographs on the left hand side, (a), (b), and (c), are taken with the groove direction parallel to one of the polarizer axes, and all the micrographs on the right hand side, , , and , are taken with the groove direction at 45° to each polarizer axis.

FIG. 3.

(Color online) Optical micrographs of liquid crystal alignment taken between crossed polarizers for the patterned silica surfaces with groove width at three different groove depths: [(a) and ], [(b) and ], and [(c) and ]. All the micrographs on the left hand side, (a), (b), and (c), are taken with the groove direction parallel to one of the polarizer axes, and all the micrographs on the right hand side, , , and , are taken with the groove direction at 45° to each polarizer axis.

FIG. 4.

(Color online) Optical micrographs of liquid crystal alignment taken between crossed polarizers for the patterned silica surfaces deposited with octadecyltrichlorosilane for groove width at three different groove depths: [(a) and ], [(b) and ], and [(c) and ]. All the micrographs on the left hand side, (a), (b), and (c), are taken with the groove direction parallel to one of the polarizer axes, and all the micrographs on the right hand side, , , and , are taken with the groove direction at 45° to each polarizer axis.
