Paper Abstract

A new analog phase modulator operating at 10.6μm using a Nematic Liquid Crystal thin film allows very accurate phase control with a 2π phase shift and response times τup and τdown lower than 300μs for low applied voltages (250V). These performances are achieved with a four electrodes structure generating an electric field whose direction is continuously controlled from 0° to 90° and always forces the NLC molecules in rotation.
