Fabrication of a binary LC grating with the optic-axis modulation angle through two processes: (a) a patterned UV light exposure to produce spatially periodic interpolymer networks in the whole bulk and (b) a single pump beam irradiation in regions 1 and 2.
Microscopic textures of the optic-axis modulated LC grating under crossed polarizer after pumping at : (a) “I” and “II” denote the unpumped area and the pumped area, respectively. The textures were taken such that the rubbing direction makes angles of (b) 9° and (c) 63° with respect to the polarizer denoted by .
