Abstract

An orange-reflecting photonic polymer film has been fabricated based on a hydrogen-bonded cholesteric liquid crystalline (CLC) polymer consisting of non-reactive (R)-(+)-3-methyladipic acid as the chiral dopant. This polymer film can be patterned easily by evaporating the chiral dopant at specific locations with a hot pen or a laser beam. Removal of chiral dopant leads to a decrease in the helical pitch at the heat treated areas leading to a change in color from orange to green revealing a high contrast pattern. The photonic patterns are irreversible and stable at ambient conditions. This makes such a CLC polymer film interesting as writable photonic paper. © (2016) COPYRIGHT Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE).
