Abstract. In this paper, TiO2 nanoparticle doped polymer dispersed liquid crystal (PDLC) lenses were made from a mixture of prepolymer, E7 liquid crystal and TiO2 nanoparticles by a polymerization induced phase separation (PIPS) process for smart electronic glasses with auto-shading and auto-focusing functions. Infrared spectroscopy investigation made it possible to obtain the monomer conversion rates, in order to determine the effect of the presence of nanoparticles on the kinetics of polymerization and phase separation.
