Vescent Photonics, in collaboration with David Walba at the University of Colorado, proposes to develop, synthesize and test liquid crystals that will be suitable for a novel electro-optic design. This design enables unprecedented electro-optic phase delay (>1mm), with very low loss and rapid response time. Innovative liquid crystal formulations, including de Vries phase smectic materials, will be tailored to this new implementation. The combined performance is expected to enable numerous useful devices including spectral filters, tunable lasers, beam steerers, and many more.
