Abstract

Liquid-crystal and polymer dispersions are typically made utilizing one of three methods of phase separation. Laser light scattering is a convenient method to probe the evolving supra-nano scale and micron scale morphology of phase-separating mixtures. We used laser light scattering to probe the evolving supra-nano and micron scale structure of phase-separating liquid crystal and monomer mixtures induced with photon-initiated polymerization. We report on the evolutionary phase separation for mixtures of the E7 and the thiol-ene based optical adhesive Norland 65 from low to high weight percentages of E7.
