We study the effect of graphene oxide (GrO) on the switching voltage of polymer dispersed liquid
crystal (PDLC). The threshold voltage decreases with addition of GrO nanoparticles. Scanning
electron microscopy (SEM) supported that the size of LC droplets in GrO-doped PDLC increase in
comparison with non-doped one. PDLC:GrO layer was combined with Bi12SiO20 (BSO) inorganic
substrate into a hybrid structure and based on the surface activated photorefractive phenomena
typical for BSO, it allows the opaque-transparent states to be all optically controlled,
operating faster and requiring less intensity due to the GrO addition in PDLC.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
