Abstract

We introduce the characteristics of the titanium dioxide ( Ti O 2 ) inorganic film deposited by rf magnetron sputtering for liquid crystal display applications. The Ti O 2 films demonstrated vertical alignment (VA) of the liquid crystals (LCs) obtained by using ion-beam (IB) bombardment. As observed by using x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, the chemical structure of the Ti O 2 was changed by IB bombardment, altering the Ti–O bonding of the Ti 2 p spectra to lower intensity levels. Breaking Ti–O bonding by IB bombardment created pretilt angles between the Ti O 2 film and LC molecules. The better voltage-transmittance characteristics of the VA LCDs based on Ti O 2 film were measured and compared with the same characteristics of polyimide film.
