Paper Abstract

We have developed a non-contact birefringence probing method for studying the dielectric heating-induced temperature rise of dual-frequency liquid crystals (DFLCs). The dielectric heating effects of three DFLC mixtures are investigated quantitatively. By properly choosing the molecular structures, the dielectric heating effect can be minimized while keeping other desirable physical properties uncompromised.
