Paper Abstract

We present results of our recent research in the implementation of optical modulation devices utilizing polymer dispersed liquid crystal materials. Optical bistability, power limiting, self-pulsations, and optical deflection (diffraction) have been observed in these devices. Experimental results and potential applications are discussed.
