Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

A beam coupling was performed in a LC device comprised of LC and a photoconductive alignment layer. The direction of liquid crystals in that device was controlled by the illumination of light. A refractive index grating was formed by the interference of laser beams. The effect of rubbing treatment and measurement conditions was investigated.
