  A photopolymerisable monomer/liquid crystal (LC)/chiral dopant/photoinitiator mixture with a smectic A (SmA*)-chiral nematic (N*) phase transition was prepared. After the SmA* phase was homeotropically oriented and then irradiated by ultraviolet light, a homeotropically oriented polymer network was formed in the SmA* phase and then a homeotropically oriented polymer network-stabilised liquid crystal (PSLC) film with a SmA*-N* phase transition was prepared. In the temperature range of the SmA* phase, the LC molecules were homeotropically oriented and the film exhibited a transparent state. However, in the temperature range of the N* phase, the film exhibited a strong light-scattering state owing to the fact that the LC molecules adopted a focal conic alignment affected by the homeotropically oriented polymer network. The strong light-scattering state of the N* phase could be changed into a transparent one when an electric field was applied. The focus of this study was on the effects of composition of the PSLC film on its thermo-optical and electro-optical properties.

  A polymer-stabilised cholesteric liquid crystal (PSChLC) was fabricated by ultraviolet (UV) induced polymerisation of photopolymerisable acrylate monomers mixed in a cholesteric liquid crystal (ChLC). A polymer network with a concentration gradient, which was induced by UV light absorption of dye along the propagation direction, was formed. A hydrogen bond, arising between the polymer network with a concentration gradient containing carboxyl as proton donors and chiral dopant (CD) as proton acceptors, induced a pitch gradient in PSChLC and then, as a consequence, broadband reflection. The broadband reflection is associated with the concentration and the composition of photopolymerisable acrylate monomers, the concentration of CD and the polymerisation temperature. Examining the morphologies of the polymer network by scanning electron microscopy, the helix structure and pitch gradient were verified, confirming the pitch gradient of the PSChLC and revealing the essence of the formation of broadband reflection.
