Factors affecting the thin cell performance of a liquid crystal cell are analyzed. Examples based on vertically aligned thin cells are given to illustrate these effects. When the cell gap is below similar to 2 mu m, the liquid crystal alignment material, layer thickness, and anchoring energy all play important roles. The first two factors affect the threshold and on-state voltage, while the last one affects the operating voltage and response time. Three reflective liquid crystal cells are studied experimentally. Good agreement between experiment and theory is obtained. (c) 2008 American Institute of Physics.
