Wavelength Dependence of Optical Reorientation in Dye-Doped Nematics
The wavelength dependence of the optical reorientation of nematic liquid crystals is investigated in the presence of two dyes, using the z-scan technique. A strong correlation is found between the magnitude of the dye-induced amplification of the optical torque and the dichroism of the system.
