Paper Abstract

We discuss examples involving the development of ordered polymer thin films for application as light bending devices. This paper focus on the preparation of ordered polymer architectures using self-assembled or field-induced optical patterns of various liquid crystal hosts for imprinting or templating polymer or functional materials. The various images of ordered polymer are provided by the polarized optical microscopy (POM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) study. Slantwise UV irradiation technique was applied for the formation of the asymmetric polymer patterns. Various UV irradiation angles were used and significant differences in the polymer patterns with respect to the applied angle were observed. Transmission grating patterns are investigated. The electro-optical measurements for the analysis of patterned cells will be presented.
