Abstract
Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystals (PDLC) are materials formed by dispersions of liquid crystal (LC) droplets in a polymer matrix (1)• These materials are electro-optical active films which can be switched from a light scattering state (off state) to a transparent state (on state) by the application of a voltage (2)• The embedded mesophase within the droplets can be nematic (N), cholesteric (N*), chiral smectic C (SC*), or antiferroelectric (SCA*) (2)
