Paper Abstract

The methods of creation of areas with different structural properties in one PDLC layer are described. It means that number, size, and shape of liquid crystal droplets, and also a director alignment, are different in particular areas of a polymer matrix. For this reason, optical and electro-optical properties of such a layer are unhomogeneous and an optical pattern may be obtained for the light passing through the layer. Possibilities of application of PDLC layers with structural pattern in optical devices are discussed.
