We have investigated the electro-optical performance of switchable nematic emulsions as a function of temperature. The electro-optical properties of nematic emulsions are highly dependent on temperature because several parameters such as droplet size, number density, viscosity, surface free energy, elastic constant, refractive indices, dielectric anisotropy, and liquid crystal/monomer solubility are affected by temperature. In particular, both ON state transmittances and decay times show a decreasing behaviour with increasing temperature. On the contrary, the OFF state transmittances increase, and the rise times do not change in an appreciable way. © 2000 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

Abstract

We have investigated the electro-optical performance of switchable nematic emulsions as a function of temperature. The electro-optical properties of nematic emulsions are highly dependent on temperature because several parameters such as droplet size, number density, viscosity, surface free energy, elastic constant, refractive indices, dielectric anisotropy, and liquid crystal/monomer solubility are affected by temperature. In particular, both ON state transmittances and decay times show a decreasing behaviour with increasing temperature. On the contrary, the OFF state transmittances increase, and the rise times do not change in an appreciable way. © 2000 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
