Diffractive ferroelectric liquid-crystal shutters for unpolarized light

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

Electro-optic modulators using ferroelectric liquid-crystal technology have generally been limited to use with polarized light. It is possible, however, to construct a diffractive array of ferroelectric liquid-crystal phase modulators that can act as a shutter for unpolarized light. We have built two types of polarization-independent diffractive shutter based on this principle. We describe their principles of operation and performance.
