1. A liquid crystal based optoelectronic device, comprising
an upper substrate and a lower substrate,
a liquid crystal layer sandwiched between the upper substrate and the lower substrate, and
a pair of indium-tin-oxide (ITO) nano-whisker layers respectively formed on the inner surfaces of the upper substrate and the lower substrate, wherein each nano-whisker layer comprises a plurality of whiskers, and each whisker comprises a main column and a plurality of branches extending from the main column;
wherein the ITO nano-whisker layers are alignment layers for aligning liquid crystal molecules in the liquid crystal layer.
