Surface driven switching of the liquid crystal bulk arising from the coupling between an applied electric field and a polarized state of a nematic liquid crystal, both localized at the substrate surface, is reported. Fast switching is demonstrated in a hybrid aligned nematic cell with a fringe electric field generated by comb-like electrode structure.
