Abstract

A crosslinkable cholesteric main-chain liquid crystal oligomer was prepared, and coated on glass using blade-coating. The coating showed a reflection band that varied as a function of temperature over a range of several hundreds of nanometers. This allowed patterning of the coating in various colours using multiple crosslinking steps at different temperatures.
