Paper Abstract

Modulation characteristics of the light passing through a polarizer-free electrooptical cell based on a double uniaxially oriented film of polymer dispersed ferroelectric liquid crystals (PDFLC) have been studied. Theoretical analysis is presented of the dependence of the maximum light transmission, modulation depth and contrast ratio on the angle between the orientation of PDFLC films, on their optical anisotropy and the molecular tilt angle (Theta) . Parameters under study have been measured, and the experimental results are in good agreement with the theoretical estimations.
