ABSTRACT
The possibility of inducing a light transmittance memory effect in a ferroelectric material was investigated. Lead lanthanum zirconate titanate was examined for a light transmittance memory effect, and it was confirmed that the light transmittance had two stable values in the absence of an electrical field after control of the imprint electrical field. This memory effect was demonstrated as an optical shutter under pulsed voltage operation, resulting in decreased energy consumption and simple operation.
