Paper Title:
An Easy Way to Make Liquid Crystal Cells for Laboratory Uses
  Abstract

We present an easy way to make liquid crystal cells for laboratory uses. It is demonstrated that a homemade LC cell can be made out of two pieces of ITO glasses, a tiny amount of glue and four tiny pieces of thin Mylar films as spacers. The flatness of the thin panels is evaluated with an ultraviolet-visible spectrometer by measuring the transmission spectra for a series spots on the homemade LC cell. Tests of our homemade LC cells filled with a banana-shaped LC show that the quality of our homemade LC cell is good enough for regular laboratory tests of newly synthesized LC compounds.
