Paper Abstract

A simple model to describe the propagation of light through a nematic liquid crystal cell is introduced. Experimental measurements are presented of the intensity (arbitrary units) of the light transmitted through a twisted nematic cell mounted between crossed or parallel polaroids as a function of the voltage amplitude (0-10 V pk-pk) of the square wave signal (1 KHz) used to activate the cell.
