1 Process Two types of polyimide are used for actual devices; solvent soluble pre-imidized polyimide and polyamic acid type. Though the pre-imidized polyimide is already imidized, a baking process is required for both type of polyimide. The alignmentrelated process consists of a coating of polyimide, a baking step, rubbing, and cleaning of the substrates. The sensitivity of the alignment material to the manufacturing process conditions is one of the important issues when selecting it for manufacturing use.

15 Incident angle dependence of the peak intensity for (a) BPDA-C8 and (b) BPDA-C7 polyimides. Model structures of (c) BPDA-C8 (trans-transoid) and (d) BPDA-C7 (trans-cisoid). Reproduction by permission from [46]. 6 23 Infrared (IR) absorption measurements Although a transmittance IR absorption spectrum measurement evaluates the bulk of the alignment material, the distribution of the alignment of the molecules can be determined by a qualitative analysis by changing the polar and azimuthal angles of the sample.

Developing a method to monitor the rubbing status of the alignment layer in situ has been a high priority goal. Recently, the optical retardation measured by reflective ellipsometry has been used for monitoring the rubbing condition in situ. The printing and baking of the alignment layer also affect the pretilt angle of the LC. Therefore, the LC manufacturer chooses an alignment material that shows little change in the LC alignment condition due to undulations. How strictly do we need to control the LC alignment to keep the electro-optical characteristics of the panel uniform?
