Abstract Cholesteric liquid crystals (CLCs) are known to exhibit selective reflection of incident radiation due to their periodic helical structure, which makes them promising candidates for a myriad of different photonic applications. At normal incidence, CLCs reflect circularly polarized incident light of the same handedness as the cholesteric helix and of wavelength λ between n o P and n e P, where n o and n e are the ordinary and extraordinary refractive indices, respectively, of the… CONTINUE READING
