We report a polymer-stabilized blue phase liquid crystal (BPLC) whose Kerr constant is about 2.2x larger than previous record. When filled in a 3.2-mu m-thick vertical field switching cell, the on-state voltage is merely 8.4 V (at lambda = 514 nm) while keeping submillisecond response time and negligible hysteresis (<1%) at the room temperature. These results imply that the dawn of BPLC era for high speed display and photonic devices has finally arrived. (C) 2013 AIP Publishing LLC
