Electro-optic bistability in organosiloxane bimesogenic liquid crystals
Journal of Applied Physics
In this paper we report the electro-optic characterization of two homologous series of low molar mass bimesogenic siloxane-containing liquid crystals. The materials used have two alkoxycyanobiphenyl mesogenic units with variable alkyl chain joined by a two-or five-siloxane moiety and all exhibit stable smectic A mesophases over wide temperature ranges ͑up to 100°C wide͒. Due to their inherent ruggedness these materials have potential for use in polarizer-free, bistable, scattering display anddoi:10.1063/1.2203391 fatcat:5tnqdbugbnfchbkdmg6scibhuu
