Abstract
Liquid crystal (LC) cells can be used in conjunction with optical fibres to develop cheap and efficient sensors, such as voltage sensors or hydrophones. In this paper we apply an effective tensor model to describe reflection from gold-coated deformed-helix ferroelectric liquid crystal (DHFLC) cells. We show that, depending on the polarisation of the incident light, it is possible to obtain a linear electro-optical response to the voltage applied to the cell. Theoretical results are compared with experimental results yielding accurate agreement.
