Abstract

A polarization independent phase modulator using two ultra-thin homogeneously stratified liquid crystal gels is demonstrated. In addition to the polarization independence and submillisecond response time, our liquid crystal gel possesses a much larger phase change and lower operating voltage than the nanosized polymer-dispersed liquid crystal.
