  1. 1. Liquid Crystals in Guided Wave Optics

    Author : Giusy Scalia; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : antiferroelectric liquid crystals; fully-leaky guided mode; ortho-conics; waveguide; liquid crystals; anisotropy;

    Abstract : Liquid crystals are unique optical materials due to their large effective electrooptic and opto-optic coefficients. Currently, liquid crystals are primarily used in flat-panel dis-plays, but there is also an increasing number of nondisplay applications requiring new types of devices employing materials with unique optical properties.
