Utilizing critical angles in sensing partially ordered liquid crystal profile.

Abstract

This paper investigates a new approach for tracking nematic uniaxial liquid crystal (LC) profile in partially ordered LC based sensors. This approach utilizes measuring critical angles for total internal reflection (TIR) at the interface of optically isotropic and partially ordered LC film. The proposed optical transduction requires measuring of the… (More)
