Paper Abstract

A method of preparation of polymeric substrates with a given surface relief is proposed. While elongating a polymer matrix with a hard coating at temperature lower than the glassing point a periodical structure is generating. The influence of structure period, depth and material on LC alignment is considered. Advantages of LC cells proposed are light weight, chemicals and shock stability, wider range of viewing angles.
