Paper Abstract

Ferroelectric smectic C* liquid crystals (FLCs) have been shown to exhibit high speed electrooptic response when incorporated into the surface stabilized ferroelectric liquid crystal light valve. An important component of the FLC material used in devices is the smectic C host, which imparts many of the important characteristics to the final mixture, allowing customization to a specific type of device. A new class of FLC materials based on a cyclohexenyl core is reported and their properties evaluated in both the pure material and mixtures.
