Abstract

The formation of mirrors reflecting a single colour or reflecting the whole visible spectrum by application of a liquid crystalline coating followed by UV polymerisation (photo-curing) is described. Also, the formation of patterned coatings obtained by a sequence of UV exposure steps is discussed. Such coatings play an important role in the improvement of the performance of liquid crystal displays (LCDs).
