Abstract
We report optical and photoresponsive behavior of nonlinear liquid crystals in two-dimensional (2D) periodic structure. 2D structure made of photoresist and titania is constructed by interference photolithography using grating mask. Then azobenzene-doped nematic liquid crystal is infiltrated into these arrays, and photoresponsive behavior of the azobenzene-doped liquid crystal in the periodic structure is investigated. In particular, we show that the diffraction from these liquid crystal infiltrated grating structures can be optically modulated by an Ar+ laser at 488 nm.
