Paper Abstract

Liquid crystal devices have become popular in a variety of display and optical data processing applications. These voltage-driven devices can control a beam of light in one of two ways: by induced optical scattering, or by induced optical phase retardation. This paper will review light-modulation effects in liquid crystals, with particular emphasis upon phase modulation effects.
