Optical polarization grating induced liquid crystal micro-structure using azo-dye command layer.


We create planar-periodic alignment in nematic liquid crystal (LC) cell by using a command layer of azo-dye molecules directly deposited on the cell substrates and exposed with two interfering laser beams of opposite circular polarizations. Permanent high efficiency polarization gratings are thus created. The diffraction efficiency of those gratings is… (More)
