Abstract

Polymer-dispersed liquid crystal (PDLC) is a material promising for application in optical communications, diffractive optics and optical data storage. Diffraction gratings were optically recorded in a novel PDLC material developed at the Centre for Industrial and Engineering Optics. Details of the fabrication and preliminary results of electro-optical switching of the holographic PDLC (HPDLC) diffraction gratings are presented. The redistribution of LCs was observed by using phase contrast microscopy and confocal Raman spectroscopy.
