Paper Abstract

We present the experimental results concerning hybrid optical bistable devices without resonant cavity using as electro-optic modulators a nematic liquid crystal cell and a polymer dispersed liquid crystal film. Bistable operation was studied for different control voltages and multistable behavior was studied for the polymer dispersed liquid crystal film as a function of the control voltage frequency.
