Abstract

Optical alignment and strong residual birefringence in a nematic liquid crystal that is stabilized by a polymer network are described. The polymer’s main chain contains an azo dye, which is responsible for the repulsion of the axis of the guest–host system from the electric field of the excitation light.

Fig. 1

Structure of the A-PSLC. Inset, A-PSLC: open ellipses, nematic liquid crystal molecules; filled ellipses, azo dye; lines, polymer chains.

Fig. 2

Micrographs of the A-PSLC cell. The exposed area is the white (black) larger semicircle at the right in (a) [(b)]. In (a) the optical axis of the cell is parallel to the axes of the analyzer and the polarizer of the microscope. In (b) the analyzer crosses the polarizer and the optical axis of the cell. The smaller circles with regular form are 34µm-diameter air bubbles.

Fig. 3

Dynamics of the light transmission detected with the setup described in the text. The excitation light is switched on at t=10 s. The curve denoted x<F corresponds to the case when the cell is placed between the lens and its focal plane. The curve denoted x>F corresponds to the case when the cell is placed behind the focal plane of the lens.
