ABSTRACT
The light scattering and electro-optic response of new material with display potential are investigated. The materials consist of microdroplets of nematic liquid crystals which are spontaneously formed in a solid polymer at the time of its polymerization. Droplet size, spacing, and distribution are readily controlled in these materials to allow optimization of displays based upon electrically controlled light scattering from the liquid crystal droplets. Preliminary experimental and theoretical studies of the light scattering properties show these materials to offer new features suitable for many display applications.
