Paper Abstract

Flexible PDLC-based devices having 'all-plastic'-made transparent electrodes were developed. Unlike the relatively non-flexible ITO-made electrodes, their polymer counterparts are mechanically flexible, allowing the fabrication of flexible devices. Other advantages of devices containing a conducting polymer are the reduction in operating energy consumption and the anticipated reduction in manufacturing costs. The electrooptical switching and imaging properties of devices having 'all-plastic' transparent electrodes were found to match those of their ITO-based counterparts. The optimal operation voltage in terms of switching rise times and optical transmittance shoed significant dependence on dimensional cell parameters, while the switching fall time was practically independent of these parameters.
