Abstract For IC-STAR 2019
Electronic gadegts are the part and parcel of the life. Thanks to the liquid cryustal displays (LCDs) which changed the way of communication in such a shorter time. Although light emitting diodes based displays occupying the market but mjorly they still use LCD panel as the display. Display market is several billion dollar industry and new technolgoies are coming and replacing the old one drastically. When it comes to LCDs, it needs to be aligned in uniform direction. Rubbing the surface in which polyimide layer already coated seemed to be the perfect strategy for the last several years but it is limited to high resolution and larger size. Adding to that it creates static defects which eventually destroys the displays.
