Morris, SM and Gardiner, DJ and Castles, F and Hands, PJW and Wilkinson, TD and Coles, HJ (2011) Fast-switching phase gratings using in-plane addressed short-pitch polymer stabilized chiral nematic liquid crystals. Applied Physics Letters, 99.Full text not available from this repository.
We demonstrate a fast-switching (sub-millisecond) phase grating based upon a polymer stabilized short-pitch chiral nematic liquid crystal that is electrically addressed using in-plane electric fields. The combination of the short-pitch and the polymer stabilization enables the diffraction pattern to be switched “on” and “off” reversibly in 600 µs. Results are presented on the far-field diffraction pattern along with the intensity of the diffraction orders as a function of the applied electric field and the response times.
