For adaptive foveated imaging using a high resolution spatial light modulator SLM, high birefringence and low viscosity LC mixtures are highly desirable. A higher birefringence enables a thinner liquid crystal layer to be used which results in a faster response time. Low viscosity is always favorable as it helps to reduce the SLM response time. For the thin-film-transistor TFT-addressed SLM, high resistivity is an extra requirement. In this report we review our development on the single compounds syntheses and mixtures with required high birefringence and relatively low viscosity within the time of the project.
