ABSTRACT Recently Liquid Crystal LC dispersed with polymer is used to enhance the physical properties of the LCs materials. These materials possess combined application of LC and polymer and their electro-optic applications have been extensively studied during last decades. The LC mixture consists of Nematic and Cholestric that are dispersed in a monomer or prepolymer with different concentration. The existing Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal PDLC consists of different concentrations of LC and monomer. The textures and Phase transition temperature PTTs can be studied by Polarising Microscope Studies PMS. The Phase transition temperature PTTs can also be studied by Fabry-Perot etalon Scattering Studies FPSS In this paper we present the changes in transition temperature along with new phase transition temperature in PDLC. Measurements were performed for both heating and cooling of various samples. In addition to this Refractive Index RI of all samples were found for optical characterization of the material. Texture observation and spectroscopic techniques are used to characterize the other properties of the PDLC samples. The PDLC suspension can be used as a new liquid crystalline material that does not require any additional alignment processing or treatment. Our results will provide new opportunity and their uses in advanced technology development.
