The anchoring energy and cell gap effects on liquid crystal response time (tau(0)) is analyzed theoretically and validated experimentally. Analytical expressions are derived using two different approaches: effective cell gap and surface dynamic equation methods. Consistent results are deduced from these two approaches. A simplified equation tau(0)similar to d(x) also fits the experimental data well, where d is the liquid crystal cell gap and x is the exponent. Under two extreme (strong and weak) anchoring limits, the exponent x approaches 2 and 1, respectively. This information is helpful for optimizing liquid crystal devices for display applications.
