Organization in highly ordered and aligned thin films for anisotropic optical and electrical properties

Surface treatment allows orienting discotic liquid crystals either “face-on” or “side-on”. Alignment extends over micrometers. Face-on orientation is desirable for photovoltaic cells and light-emitting diodes whereas edge-on is required for field-effect transistors.
