Optical tracking of the director axis in liquid crystal sensors

Abstract

In this paper, a new approach in tracking the director axis of uniaxial nematic liquid crystal (LC) for sensing applications is developed. This approach utilizes measuring critical angles for total internal reflection (TIR) at the interface of isotropic and LC film. The proposed optical transduction requires measuring two critical angles in orthogonal… (More)
