Paper Abstract

At present, we have studied and developed a liquid crystal device applied to the optical device. A liquid crystal device is useful for the transformation of polarization and phase of the light. This device is excellent in the miniaturization of the device and static because it is not necessary to use a mechancial movement and can control the light electrically. Moreover, their devices are trustworthy as optical devices and there make practicable as the wave front control devices applied for DVD optical pick up systems. This time, we report a beam deflector using liquid crystal devies we have developed.
