Abstract

The prospects of emerging polymer-stabilized blue-phase liquid-crystal displays, or more generally, Kerr-effect-induced isotropic-to-anisotropic transition, are analyzed with special emphases on the temperature effects. As the temperature increases, both the Kerr constant, induced birefringence, and response time decrease but at different rates. The proposed physical models fit well with experimental results. Some remaining technical challenges associated with this promising display technology are discussed.
