This study reports the electro-optical properties of bistable scattering mode light shutters, including driving voltage, driving frequency, response time, and variations of structure, based on ionic LCs-doped liquid crystals. With flexible substrate, such light shutters are suitable for the applications of e-paper, etc.

Keywords: ionic LCs, scattering, bistability
