Abstract

The gray-to-gray response time of a polymer-stabilized blue-phase liquid crystal is investigated. As the voltage increases, rise time decreases gradually but decay time remains unchanged. A set of analytical equations is used to fit the measured results, and an acceptable agreement is obtained.
