Paper Abstract

Hysteresis characteristics of volt-contrast curve of polymer dispersed cholesteric liquid crystal films have been studied as a function of temperature, time, voltage, material structure and composition. Material under study allows thermocontact and laser-addressed information recording with gray scale in both normal and reverse scattering mode. Recorded information can readily be erased by electric field on/off.
