Textural Spectral Characteristics of the Cholesteric Liquid Crystal
For the cholesteric liquid crystal (hereinafter short for Ch-LC) possesses special optical properties, it has specific applications in the area of liquid crystal displays and optoelectronic devices. Specimens of Ch-LCs in planar and focal conic texture stably are prepared. The photographs of textures are shot by polarizing microscope and transmittance spectrums of different textures are measured by spectrophotometer. It is found that the specimen in focal conic texture with large crystal domains has the well transmission property. The experiment has an important significance for applications of liquid crystals.
