Paper Abstract

An analytical expression for the coherent transmittance of the polymer-dispersed ferroelectric liquid crystal monolayer at oblique illumination by linearly polarized plane wave has been obtained. Within the framework of the anomalous diffraction approach the conditions for coherent transmission quenching have been determined. It is shown that for the PDFLC monolayer on the basis of bistable smectic liquid crystals it is possible to provide a coherent transmittance equal to zero and unity for two stable states of droplet directors in the electric field.
