Abstract

The characteristics of optical-radiation modulators based on electric-field-controlled birefringence in various low-thickness planar liquid-crystal structures are comprehensively investigated by computer modeling. It is shown that a shutter whose operation is based on the phenomenon of electric-field-controlled interference of polarized rays in thin planar liquid-crystal cells with zero twist angle of the structure and symmetric boundary conditions can be used in fast-acting devices with response times in the range from 100 to 200 μs.
