Abstract

Electro-optic interferential quenching of light scattering is observed in microsphere and nematic liquid-crystal dispersions. The used drop-filled and nonaligned liquid-crystal matrix allows the formation of large orientational clusters responsible for this phenomenon, which is interpreted according to the single-scattering model.
