Paper Abstract

We have prepared PDLC with mixtures of polyisobuthylmethacrylate and CN934D60 at a constant percentage of TN0623 nematic liquid crystal and change in the polymers' relative composition. Two step polymerization CN934D60 concentration and polymerization sequence. When the relative concentration of CN934D60 is increased the scanning electron microscope analysis reveals a transition from 'swiss cheese' to 'polymer ball' type morphology.
