AbstractWe present a thermally-induced liquid crystal orientation method by applying an extra orienting layer onto an inner capillary surface that can induce either planar or homeotropic liquid crystal boundary conditions. Experimental evidence of boundary-induced orientation in two types of liquid crystal (nematic, chiral nematic) in a capillary are shown.
