Abstract

Abstract— The process of in‐situ photopolymerization of reactive mesogens leads to densely crosslinked liquid crystal (LC) networks. The molecular organization within the thin films can be accurately controlled by combining the various alignment techniques known for low molar mass LCs with the structuring techniques known for photopolymerization. The films thus produced exhibit optical properties useful for polarization control and/or colour control in the various types of LCDs. 1995 Society for Information Display
