Paper Abstract

By determining Stokes' parameters of light diffracted from a nematic liquid crystal grating fabricated with a grating electrode structure, polarization modulation properties of this LC grating are characterized. The electrically controllable polarization modulations of its diffracted light are demonstrated as well as its diffraction light intensity modulations. A unique property of symmetrical diffraction light intensities but antisymmetrical polarization states in corresponding negative and positive diffraction orders is shown.
