Paper Abstract

A method for calculating transmission coefficient and characteristics of polarization state of light transmitted through polymer film with fine liquid crystal droplets is proposed. It is based on the Rayleigh-Gans approximation to describe scattering by an individual droplet, and the Foldy-Twersky equation to determine a coherent field transmitted through the polymer dispersed liquid crystal film. The results obtained relate the morphological characteristics of a film to its electro-optical response. The simple equations for scattering cross-sections are obtained. The accuracy of the method is estimated.
