Abstract

A rewritable optical storage effect induced by photoirradiation to a (liquid crystalline polymer)/(low molecular weight liquid crystal)/(photoresponsive molecule) ternary composite system was investigated. Turbid and transparent states were reversibly switched upon photoirradiation with ultraviolet and visible light, respectively, under the application of an a. c. electric field. A light-addressed optical storage of the composite film was demonstrated.
