UV-Curable Liquid Crystal for a Retarder
UV-curable liquid crystal is mesogenic monomer which can be aligned by usual method such as a rubbing technique. By UV-irradiation, it polymerizes to give a polymer in which the alignment of the liquid crystal is fixed. Applications and materials for the retarder are reviewed.
