Biomedical Optical Applications of Liquid Crystal Devices

  title={Biomedical Optical Applications of Liquid Crystal Devices},
  author={Ibrahim Abdulhalim and R. Moses and Ruth Sharon},
Liquid crystals exhibit large electro-optic effects which make them useful for a variety of applications as fast, compact, and tunable spectral filters, phase modulators, polarization controllers, and optical shutters. They were largely developed for liquid crystal displays and in the last decade for optical telecommunications, however their application in the field of optical imaging just started to emerge. These devices can be miniaturized thus have a great potential useful in miniature… CONTINUE READING
