Setup used to produce the inhomogeneous LC alignment pattern on the SD-1 films. The components labeled -plate- are half-wave plates.
Optical images of four representative LC cells constructed from SD-1 films patterned with different periods as shown. The double-sided arrows indicate the polarizer and analyzer directions used in taking the pictures.

Average LC azimuthal alignment found on SD-1 films exposed to a uniform UV laser beam polarized along for with different intensities (plotted as the abscissa) followed by a second uniform exposure with UV polarization changed to for and a fixed intensity of , set to 2.82 and for the two measurement series shown.
