A recently developed phase separated composite film method has been employed to fabricate a liquid crystal(LC) based electro-optical device using a single glass substrate. The resultant device is made of adjacent parallel layers of LC and polymer created by phase separation. The LC layer is confined between a film of solidified polymer layer on one side and the glass substrate on the other. Electro-optical properties of these devices demonstrate their technological potential in light weight and hand-held electronic products.
