We investigated the interaction between polymer network, which is prepared in liquid crystal host, and liquid crystal. It was found that the polymer network gave a rough parallel alignment because of the uniform alignment of liquid crystalline host. The polymer network formed in an electric field shows strong influence on the orientation of the liquid crystals. Higher tilt angles of liquid crystal can be achieved because of the stabilization of polymer network.
