Developing flexible liquid crystal defect mode lasers

Abstract:

The challenges associated with developing a flexible defect-mode liquid crystal (LC) laser are addressed in this paper. To begin with, we discuss the process for creating a well-aligned photopolymerized film of chiral nematic LC using various surface alignment layers such as polyvinyl alcohol, sulphonic azo-dye and rubbed polyimide. A single mode flexible defect-mode laser is demonstrated with an excitation threshold fluence of 60μJ/cm2/pulse. In accordance with previous studies, results from...
