An alignment technique for liquid crystal devices is presented that consists of polymer walls made from monomers that are oriented by an electric field while cured with a spatially patterned UV light source. The technique provides defined boundary conditions of the liquid crystal director field in three dimensions. (C) 2000 American Institute of Physics. [S0021-8979(00)08817-4].
