Paper Abstract

An aqueous polymer water gel as well as a microemulsion based gel (MBG) can be used as carrier material for dispersed thermotropic liquid crystals (LC). The LC droplet size in an aqueous water gel was dependent upon the emulsifying power. In a MBG the LC droplet size depends on the nature of the surfactant and the co-surfactant. Gel dispersed LC samples between two electrodes with a cell gap of 25 micrometers or 100 micrometers showed a scattering effect dependent upon application of an electric field.
