Abstract

We present a method that determines the actual surface azimuthal anchoring strength based on the torque balance. It is found by an optical technique of measuring simultaneously the cell thicknesses and twist angles at two regions of a wedge-type liquid crystal cell whose cell thickness varies continuously between different positions in the cell.
