Abstract

Dielectric dispersions on the Kerr constant of two polymer-stabilized blue phase liquid crystals (BPLCs) are investigated. An extended Cole-Cole model is proposed to fit the experimental results and good agreement is obtained. As the electric field frequency increases, Kerr constant decreases and the associated dielectric heating effect gradually increases. These results will undoubtedly affect the high frequency operation of BPLC devices. (C) 2011 American Institute of Physics. [doi: 10.1063/1.3657768]
