Abstract

We investigated the formation mechanism of polymer layered structure in polymer-dispersed liquid crystals, to precisely control the light diffusion distribution. Micro-convex structures on the substrate surface produced an uneven ultraviolet illuminance distribution in the LC-monomer mixture. The monomer was polymerized selectively at the positions where ultraviolet illuminance was high.
