Abstract: Polymer-dispersed liquid crystal (PDLC) films were prepared by photochemical polymerisation from an ultraviolet-curable monomer/crosslinking agent/initiator/liquid crystal (LC) mixture. The influences of the chain length of crosslinking agents on the PDLC system have been studied. The microstructures of the PDLC films were strongly influenced by the chain length of the crosslinker, which in turn influences the electro-optic properties of PDLC films. It is proved that adjusting the chain length of the crosslinking agents and the LC content can produce PDLC films that have good electro-optic properties with a lower LC content.
