Abstract : This document presents the results of the development of a low voltage, high resistivity, dyed Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal (PDLC) for use in direct view displays. Several methods for improving various PDLC characteristics are described. The optimized PDLC formulation shows substantial improvement in all operational characteristics with the single exception of hysteresis, which remains unacceptably high. Alternative applications of developed PDLC materials are discussed.
