Abstract

Polymer-stabilized blue-phase liquid crystal (BPLC) comprising fluorinated compounds with high resistivity and photochemical stability is demonstrated. The Kerr constant, driving voltage, and response time of this BPLC are measured using an in-plane switching liquid crystal cell. At 20 degrees C, the measured total response time is faster than 0.7 ms and Kerr constant is 2 nm/V-2. This fluorinated BPLC material is a promising candidate for next-generation photonic and display devices, because it can be used in active matrix addressed devices. (C) 2014 AIP Publishing LLC.
