Abstract

Among the different methods used to prepare Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystals (PDLC), the Polymerisation Induced Phase Separation technique (PIPS) can be exploited to obtain optical recording in these materials. The possibility of performing optical storage of binary images in PDLC during the curing process and post curing holographic recording, will be described and discussed.
