|Abstract: ||The effective electric field in Polymer/Gel-Glass-Dispersed Liquid Crystal (PDLC/GDLC) films using an approach based on finite-element method (FEM) has been estimated. A number of assumptions were considered in the modelin order to calculate the electric field over the whole nematic droplet volume. Our aim is to predict the behavior of the electrical magnitudes when some manufacturing parameters of PDLC/GDLC devices such as droplet size, film thickness as well as the director orientation are modified. Results fairly agree with empirical tests described elsewhere. The variations on the electric field distribution due to the interference among contiguous droplets have been studied as well.|
