Paper Abstract

We develop the novel optical device for controlling the polarization state using liquid crystal (LC) and eight-divided hole-patterned electrodes which are coated with weak anchoring alignment films. The LC director can be reoriented by applying in-plane electric fields and the other electric fields across a cell thickness layer, and then polarization state of light transmitted trough the hole-patterned region can be controlled. The design and the electrical and optical properties of the LC device are briefly discussed.
