Model of Freedericksz Transition and Hysteresis Effect in Polymer Stabilized Nematic Liquid Crystal Configurations for Display Applications
The critical field of the Freedericksz transition and optical hysteresis is investigated for Polymer Stabilized Nematic Liquid Crystals as a function of polymer concentration. The results are described by a simple phenomenological model, which accounts for the change in polymer network morphology as the concentration of polymer is increased.
