Paper Abstract

Model of light transmission through a polymer-dispersed liquid crystal film with nanosized nematic droplets at oblique and normal illumination is presented. The model is based on the Rayleigh-Gans approximation describing light scattering by a single droplet and the Foldy-Twersky equation taking into account multiple scattering. Dependences of extinction, phase shift, and polarization state of light on the applied electric field are considered. The theoretical results are compared with the available experimental data.
