Abstract
Ferroelectric liquid crystalline mixtures composed of a smectic liquid crystal, a photoconductive chiral dopant, and an electron trap reagent exhibit a large photorefractivity with a rapid response. It is expected that the photorefractive FLC blends can be utilized in dynamic amplification of moving optical signals. In the present study, the photorefractive properties of the ferroelectric liquid crystal blends containing different photoconductive chiral dopants were examined. The durability of the photoconductive chiral dopants during laser irradiation was investigated. Tthe effect of the conduction of photogenerated ionic species on the photorefractivity decay was clarified.
