Paper Abstract

Nematic liquid crystal devices are slow compared to solid state liquid state devices based on electronic transitions. This stems from the origin of such effects in the mechanical interaction of long range order. The following paper describes an approach to optimizing the response of such devices by limiting the lineal dimension over which these effects occur.
