The operating principle of our device: (a) The component of the input beam is deflected when the LC molecules are aligned along the direction and (b) there is no deflection when they become aligned along the direction.
(a) The fabrication process for the polymer wedge and (b) the schematic diagram of the LC steering cell with the polymer wedge.
The experimental setup for measuring the polarization-dependent deflecting angles of an input beam.
The locations of the deflected beam at the various applied voltages in case of (a) an angle of 0° between the rubbing direction and the input polarizer, (b) an angle of 90°, and (c) an angle of 45°, respectively.
Dependence of the steering angle on the applied voltage. The open symbols and the solid lines denotes the experimental data and the simulation results, respectively.
