Abstract

This review discusses how the main parameters of the deposition regimes of the oxides of semiconductors and metals affect the structure and relief of a precipitated film and analyzes the orientation mechanisms of liquid crystals (LCs) by means of such films. The dependence between the deposition angles, the tilt of the crystallites, and the tilt of the LC director is reported. It is shown that, when the deposition angle of the orienting film is increased relative to the substrate plane, it can be energetically favorable to make a transition either to the planar or the homeotropic orientation of the LC, depending on the film-deposition rate.
