Abstract

Micro-sized domains with the uniformity of molecular alignment of a columnar liquid crystal with polymerizable groups were formed by polarized infrared laser to excite the aromatic C-C stretching mode of vibration. The following in-situ photopolymerization gave a polymer film in which such newly formed domains of mesophase are maintained. The domain structures were not be broken in a wider range of temperature, indicating the combination of polarized infrared irradiation and UV-photopolymerization could provide functional polymer devices performing electronic as well as optical functions in usage of highly ordered mesophase materials.
