Paper Abstract

The proposed paper describes a deflector-chopper based on electrically controlled total internal reflection (TIR) . Thin positive nematic liquid crystal layer Merck 1132 is used as an electrooptic medium. The most interesting advantage of TIR based devices is their high contrast (or s2gnalto--noise ratio). The investigations performed are devoted to the behavior of image contrast vs. applied electric field.
