abstract

A novel approach to the liquid crystal modulators design is suggested under which the liquid crystal is treated as a distribution capacitor. To control the capacitor, we introduced a distribution high resistance control electrode. We devised methods of control and investigated modal liquid crystal modulators that can be used as adaptive cylindrical and spherical lenses. Analytical derivations, computer and experimental results are presented and discussed.
