Theory of dielectric and optical properties of PDLC films

Theory of dielectric and optical properties of PDLC films
Theory of dielectric and optical properties of PDLC films
We present results of the light scattering properties of PDLC films in the Rayleigh-Gans long wavelength régime. The calculations take into account dependent scattering effects using an effective medium theory. The Percus-Yevick hard-sphere approximation is used to introduce droplet correlation effects. We discuss the light scattering properties of radial and bipolar partially ordered droplets, making detailed comparisons with the literature where appropriate.

Abstract

We present results of the light scattering properties of PDLC films in the Rayleigh-Gans long wavelength régime. The calculations take into account dependent scattering effects using an effective medium theory. The Percus-Yevick hard-sphere approximation is used to introduce droplet correlation effects. We discuss the light scattering properties of radial and bipolar partially ordered droplets, making detailed comparisons with the literature where appropriate.
