Temperature dependent ORP (left) and (Δns) 2 (right) of HTG-23.
Bragg reflection wavelength vs. optical rotatory power: red open circles are the measured ORP at λ = 633 nm, green filled circles at λ = 514 nm, and blue triangles at λ = 457 nm. Lines are fitting curves using Eq. (3) with only one parameter φo = 3.12 deg/μm.
Light leakage vs. analyzer rotation angle. Here, 0° means the analyzer is crossed with polarizer, and positive rotation angle represents rotation in right-hand direction. Red open circles are the measured light leakage at λ = 633 nm, green filled circles at λ = 514 nm, and blue triangles at λ = 457 nm. Dashed lines are the overall leakage of white light, including 30% red, 60% green, and 10% blue lights.
LC director configuration in BP-I phase: Double-twist cylinders.
The multi-domain multi-layer TN cell structure used in the simulation. Upper part: top view, and lower part: cross-section view.
Polarization state change of the light passing through a multi-domain multi-layer TN cell: black dotted lines show the incident polarization state. Blue solid line shows the simulated outgoing polarization state.
Polarization rotation effect: Comparison of IPS and VFS samples. T⊥: Transmittance with analyzer crossed. : Transmittance with analyzer rotated by an angle α. Here, the positive α results from the employed right-handed chiral dopant.
