Abstract

The dispersion relation on the Kerr constant (K) of a polymer-stabilized isotropic phase (PSIP) liquid-crystal (LC) composite is investigated. Our experimental results show that K decreases as the wavelength (lambda) increases. The single-band birefringence dispersion model is used to fit the lambda K values of the PSIP LC composite. Very good agreement between the experiment and physical model is obtained.
