Paper Abstract

In this paper, we demonstrate two types of optically isotropic liquid crystalline states; (1) nano-segregated droplets of a nematic liquid crystal, dispersed in a photo-crosslinked polymer matrix, and (2) BPIII with a very short pitch of the UV region using bent-core nematogens with chiral-dopant. In both cases, we realize a complete dark state (OFF-state), switchable to ON-state by applying an electric field. These optically isotropic states are expectable as a principle for applications to extremely high-contrast and highly-responsive liquid crystal displays.
