Changes in the electro-optical properties of a PDLC system by monomer substitution
This paper deals with the changes on switching fields and response times of a PDLC system when small percentages of the thermoplastic polymer are replaced by the same quantity of monomer. An improving of the electro-optical properties, i.e. a reduction in driving voltages and rise times, is obtained when about 10 weight % of polymer is replaced by monomers with a high solubility in liquid crystal droplets. Morphology changes are observed for substitutions larger than 20 weight %.
