Paper Abstract

A theoretical model for the description of noise properties of polymer dispersed liquid crystal monolayers is proposed. A signal-noise ratio and a coherent transmittance of a monolayer with spherical nematic droplets have been analyzed as a function of a size parameter at different concentration of droplets and refractive index of polymer matrix. Radial and homeotropic uniformity oriented nematic director structures of droplets have been investigated. The radial distribution function is described in the hard discs approximation. Numerical result are obtained in the anomalous-diffraction approach.
