We report our recent efforts on the fabrication and characterization of light responsive devices realized in soft composite materials. Periodic microstructures obtained by means of a photolithographic technique and a chemical etching process have been used to micro confine a light responsive liquid crystal stabilized through a self-organization processes. The high quality, light responsive, periodic microstructures have been exploited for realizing different all-optical, fast and low power applications. An overview of the realized photonic devices is presented.

Abstract

We report our recent efforts on the fabrication and characterization of light responsive devices realized in soft composite materials. Periodic microstructures obtained by means of a photolithographic technique and a chemical etching process have been used to micro confine a light responsive liquid crystal stabilized through a self-organization processes. The high quality, light responsive, periodic microstructures have been exploited for realizing different all-optical, fast and low power applications. An overview of the realized photonic devices is presented.
