Paper Abstract

The essential properties of polymer-dispersed liquid crystals are described. The main attention is paid to the influence of system morphology on electro-optical properties of nematic-containing systems. The thermo-optical properties of dispersed chiral nematics are presented. Electro-optical switching in systems containing ferro- and antiferroelectric liquid crystal phases is shown. The selected applications of the discussed systems are presented, including electrically switchable windows, fast light modulators, sensors, fiber-optic devices and presentations for teaching physics.
