Paper Abstract

We report on recent experiments performed on Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystals (PDLCs) and dye doped nematic liquid crystals (DDLCs), showing that these materials are potentially applicable in the development of novel optical devices free from the limitations typical of the currently used liquid crystal spatial light modulators. Nano-sized PDLCs, standard PDLCs with well patterned liquid crystal droplets distribution and dye doped liquid crystals with huge nonlinear response will be taken into account and shown to be among the most promising class of materials for developing high quality and low cost spatial light modulators.
