Paper Abstract

The optical method to retrieve order parameter of liquid crystal droplets with rigidly fixed poles has been developed. The method is based on measurement of coherent transmittance of a monolayer of polymer-dispersed liquid crystal droplets and comparison with the results of coherent transmittance calculation. To calculate coherent transmittance of a polymer -dispersed liquid crystal monolayer the anomalous diffraction approximation and the approximation of effective refractive indexes for liquid crystal droplets are used.
