The manufacturing and measurement of twisted nematic liquid crystal cell was analyzed. The relationship between molecular order and optical and dielectric properties of the liquid crystalline state was demonstrated. The students were able to explore the relation between molecular structure and intermolecular interactions. It was analyzed that the observed properties of bulk materials were used to construct a technology called twisted nematic liquid crystal cell.
