Statistically-designed liquid crystalline molecular cell sensors
This paper presents a statistical analysis of factors that influence the optical transmission characteristics of the Cholesteric Liquid Crystal (CLC) molecular cell. Two factors, percent dopant concentration and liquid crystal loading temperature, were chosen to design the optical bandgap slope of CLC as a preliminary demonstration for this method. Identification of dominant and ideal factor levels, including their interactions, enable a statistically enhanced molecular design method of CLC for broad sensor applications.
