Paper Abstract

Polymer-stabilized optically isotropic liquid crystal exhibits a fairly large Kerr constant and has potential to become next-wave display technology. The underlying physical mechanism is the Kerr-effect-induced isotropic-to-anisotropic transition. Wavelength and temperature effect on the Kerr constant of optically isotropic liquid crystal composites are investigated. Our experimental results indicate that as the wavelength or temperature increases, K decreases. The proposed physical models fit very well with the experimental data.
