Paper Title:
Diffraction Equation for One-Dimensional Gratings Self-Assembled by Banana-Shaped Liquid Crystals
  Abstract

Banana-shaped liquid crystals can self-assemble themselves into one kind of thin films in which periodic modulation of the refractive index can be developed. When a beam of light is shone onto the thin films, diffraction patterns can be formed. In this work, the diffraction equation is derived for one-dimensional diffraction gratings formed by banana-shaped liquid crystals.
