  • The development of voltage-controlled visible-wavelength progression in displays and optical data storage devices using ferroelectric polymers and liquid crystals is described. Ferroelectric polymers are materials that have a ready distribution of dipoles which can be oriented by manipulating material composition and external fields. Utilizing the charge polarization distribution, their performance as an alignment layer for inducing liquid-crystal alignment is presented. The switching response of the devices was tailored by changing the material composition through copolymers and nanoclay doping. © Copyright 2007 Society for Information Display.
