Paper Abstract

A liquid crystal-photoconductor (LC-PC) sandwich system that controls the optical thickness of a liquid crystal layer by means of a ZnS film used as an ultraviolet light sensitive photoconductor has been constructed. The LC-PC devices were investigated using a Mach- Zehnder interferometer and split He-Ne laser beam. The created interference pattern was used to analyze the feature of the image formed on the PC layer by ultraviolet light.
