Abstract

The possibilities to induce regular, stationary stripe patterns with easily controllable wavenumber have been investigated with the aim to apply them in optical devices as gratings. Several, electric field induced phenomena have been studied on three members of a homologous series of a bent core nematic. Pattern morphologies, threshold voltages and wave numbers have been determined. Temporal evolution and switching dynamics have been analyzed.
