Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate fast flexoelectro-optic switching in a liquid crystal cell containing bimesogen-doped and polymer-stabilized cholesteric. The device exhibits a response time of less than 0.7 ms and with low hysteresis and color dispersion which is suitable for potential applications including field-sequential color displays.
