Paper Abstract

We obtained polymer dispersed liquid crystal (PDLC) films using a nematic liquid crystal E7 and polymethyl methacrylate by the Solvent Induced Phase Separation method. Using the Thermally Stimulated Depolarization Current method we determined the clearing point of the pure liquid crystal and the PDLC films. The glass transition temperature of the PMMA matrix has also been determined. The result have been compared with those obtained by Differential Scanning Calorimetry. During the TSDC measurements we registered the optical transmission as a function of temperature, thus the thermal switch operation being demonstrated.
