Paper Abstract

Transmittance-control devices, such as a suspended particle device, electrochromic device, and dye-doped liquid crystal (LC) device, have been studied for a smart window, eyewear, and automotive applications. These devices require a high transmittance difference between the transparent and opaque states. Among the dye-doped LC devices, a dye-doped chiral-nematic LC (CNLC) cell has been widely used for transmittance-control devices. However, the colors of cells are different between the homogeneously aligned and CNLC cell. In this study, we demonstrated a systematic approach to find optimum dye concentrations for black color in a dye-doped CNLC cell. We took its transmission spectrum into account in the numerical calculation to realize the black color in a dye-doped CNLC cell. Through the iterative method, we could optimize the concentration of each single dye for realizing the black color. We confirmed that a dye-doped CNLC cell designed by considering transmission spectrum of it could provide the black color in the CIE 1931 color space.
