Abstract

Monte Carlo (MC) simulations and the Mueller matrix formalism were applied to investigate electro optical properties of a LC cell with planar boundary conditions for various thicknesses. Field dependent global order parameter and the optical transmissions were analyzed in common. Three characteristic regions of the periodicity of optical transmissions as a function of polarizer angle and the external field were identified.
