- Structural colors from cholesteric liquid crystals (CLCs) are manipulated by changing the only surface anchoring energy of an alignment layer. This behavior comes from the fact that weak surface energy of the perfluoropolymer induces the tilting of the cholesteric helix. Such deformed CLC structures with durability are successfully demonstrated without any external field applications and additional solidification processes. In addition, electrical tunings of structural colors from the deformed CLCs occur at very low operating voltages, compared to those of conventional CLC structures. On the basis of easy and simple fabrication, high durability, electrical tunability at low operating voltages, and the unique optical characteristics, the new deformed CLC structure could lead to extension in applications of CLCs, including multifunctional sensors, displays, and lasers. © 2018 American Chemical Society.
