The surface of self-constructed molecular density modulation (SDM) exhibits a wide range of liquid crystal alignment capabilities including planar, tilted, and homeotropic alignments, disclination-free uniform and heterogeneous alignments, and even spatially varying alignments through the single non-contact process. Alignment defects are eliminated by temporary lowering the frictional energy barrier via the open-boundary elastic stabilization (OES) treatment.
