Abstract
A rodlike polymer with various side chain lengths was prepared in a good qu ality of films. The polymer films were rubbed, and used in constructing liq uid-crystal (LQ cells which were filled with a nematic LC containing a dich roic dye. For the LC cells, the ability of polymers to align LCs was evalua ted, and compared to that of semi-rigid polymer containing the same type of side chains as the rodlike polymer had.
