Abstract :

The optomechanical characteristics of oriented polymer films made from a photopolymerizable liquid crystal diacrylate were examined, with general implications for oriented films of similar materials being used and considered for display-component applications. The results highlight the robustness of fully polymerized reactive mesogen optical films to withstand the moderate strains anticipated during manufacturing processes and in-service deformation caused by bending or impact.
