Abstract

The three-dimensional structure of polymer-stabilized blue phase with the order of optical wavelength was nondestructively investigated by a confocal laser scanning microscope. The periodical patterns corresponding to the bcc lattice were observed not only on the surface but also in the internal region. The visualization mechanism was expected to be back scattering caused by liquid crystal order.
