Almeida, Pedro L., Sudarshan Kundu, João Paulo Borges, Maria Helena Godinho, and Joao L. Figueirinhas. "Electro-optical light scattering shutter using electrospun cellulose-based nano-and microfibers." Applied Physics Letters 95 (2009): 043501. AbstractWebsite

Electrospun cellulose-based nano and microfibers and a nematic liquid crystal are used to assemble an electro-optical (EO) light-scattering device that shows enhanced characteristics when compared to similar devices. Based on the controlled scattering of light in the composite system, the device can achieve light transmission coefficients tunable from 1% up to around 89%. Simulation of the EO behavior indicates that the roughness of the polymer-liquid crystal interface is crucial for the optical performance of the device.
