  Chiral propane-1,2-di-(4-(4-heptylcyclohexyl)benzoate) (PPCB) and 1-phenylethane-1,2-di-(4-(4-heptylcyclohexyl) benzoate) (PEPB) were synthesised and used as chiral dopants to induce chiral nematic liquid crystals (N*-LCs). Since the helical twisting power of the former first decreased and then increased as a result of thermally induced inversion helicity sense, and those of the latter changed little with increasing temperature, the pitch lengths of the N*-LCs prepared from (N-LC)/PPCB/(R)-PEPB and N-LC/PPCB/(S)-PEPB mixtures decreased and increased with increasing temperature respectively. Then, based on these two kinds of N*-LCs, polymer stabilised liquid crystal films were obtained, in which the bandwidth of the selective reflection spectra increased with increasing temperature.

  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.
