Project: Liquid crystals for new photonic applications

project duration
01-FEB-04 – 31-JAN-07
The project proposal aims at two applications of liquid crystals in photonics: the use in fast-switching, high-contrast displays and the use in fast photonic switches for telecom applications. Liquid crystals mixtures will be developed and characterized by the Institute of Chemistry in Warsaw. The mixtures will be incorporated in photonic devices which will be tested at Ugent-ELIS.
