A bistable chiral tilted-homeotropic nematic cell which uses dual-frequency liquid crystal is demonstrated. This cell can be switched between the tilted homeotropic state and the twisted state. The switching mechanisms are achieved by the backflow effect together with the anisotropic properties of the dual-frequency liquid crystal material. The experimental results of this bistable cell are described explicitly.
