Multi-twist retarders: broadband retardation control using self-aligning reactive liquid crystal layers

OPTICS EXPRESS, 21(1), 404–420.

By: R. Komanduri*, K. Lawler* & M. Escuti*

TL;DR: This work employs a numerical design method and focuses on achromatic quarter- and half-wave MTRs, which offer remarkably effective control of broadband polarization transformation and can easily achieve large bandwidth and/or low-variation of retardation within visible through infrared wavelengths.

Elastic continuum analysis of the liquid crystal polarization grating

PHYSICAL REVIEW E, 76(2).

By: R. Komanduri n & M. Escuti n

TL;DR: It is shown that flow effects likely play an essential role in the fall times, presumably due to the prominent splay-bend deformation of the zero-field configuration, and the approximation technique used is likely broadly useful for many problems which include nano- or micropatterned surfaces.
