Controllable Propulsion by Light : Steering a Solar Sail via Tunable Radiation Pressure


(1 of 6) 1600668 polymer dispersed liquid crystal (PDLC) films stand out due to their ability to be switched from an opaque to a transparent state with the applied external electric field without the need for polarizers. Since its discovery,[13] researchers have extensively explored the potential applications of PDLCs in the areas of flat panel displays,[14… (More)
