Paper Abstract

The transmission spectra of nuclear pore membranes filled with nematic liquid crystal have been measured depending upon the transversally applied voltage. It has been shown that spectral and electro-optical characteristics of membranes with ensemble of uniformly ordered oblique pores strongly depend on the direction of polarization of incident light. The transmission spectrum of the polarized light passed through such membrane has few maxima and minima with field-varied positions on the wavelength axis. Presented results can be used to develop polarizer-free tunable color filters.
