So, in an NLC cell with the initially irradiated layer, subsequent illumination with reorienting light which polarization differs from the one used to prepare the layer can trigger the light-induced reorientation of the easy axis which is governed by the photoinduced reordering of azo-dye molecules [9] and maybe of considerable interest for applications such as LC rewritable devices [10].

Adsorption is favored by hydroxyl-, nitro - and azo-dyes. Presence of sulpho-groups in acid dyes reduce the possibility of adsorption process, whereas these groups do not influence the adsorption in case of reactive and direct dyes [7], which show responses to this method.
