We clarified that molecular alignment of polymers dispersed in ferroelectric liquid crystal (FLC) moved under switching behaviors of the FLC using polarization Raman spectral microscopy. The polymer alignment change became large with the increase in the FLC switching angle. Polymer deformations with the alignment change is thought to be useful for improving the switching angle and a threshold voltage of the FLC although the FLC switching behavior is suppressed by the polymer.
