Abstract
This work aims at understanding how the liquid crystal device geometry affects its transient nonlinear response to 6-9 ns laser radiation, 10-Hz repetition rate. Results reported here are from Z-scan measurements at 0.532-micrometers laser wavelength of two pure liquid crystals with 'rod-like' molecules of similar chemical composition, but distinguished by conformal differences, i.e., 5CB and chiral CB15.
