  • Patent number: 11112670
    Abstract: A light control film and a light control system, which not only simply change the amount of transmitted light but also can be used for a wider range of applications. This light control film includes a first electrode, a second electrode, a liquid crystal material, and a dichroic dye, and has a guest-host type liquid crystal layer in which light transmittance varies with the potential difference between the first electrode and the second electrode, wherein the liquid crystal layer has a first haze value when the potential difference is a first potential difference, has a second haze value when the potential difference is a second potential difference, and has a third haze value higher than at least the second haze value when the potential difference is a third potential difference between the first potential difference and the second potential difference.

  • Publication number: 20210208445
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing a laminated glass whereby, in a laminated glass comprising a liquid crystal film sandwiched therein and having a three-dimensionally curved surface shape, the formation of wrinkles in the liquid crystal film can be suppressed; and a laminated glass which has a three-dimensionally curved surface shape and in which wrinkles in a liquid crystal film sandwiched therein are suppressed. The method for manufacturing the laminated glass comprises: a heat molding step for heating the liquid crystal film to a temperature higher than the glass transition point of the first base material layer and the second base material layer; and a bonding step for, after completing the heat molding step, heating the laminate, wherein the liquid crystal film is sandwiched between the first glass sheet and the second glass sheet, at a temperature lower than the glass transition point and bonding the same by applying a preset pressure.

  • Publication number: 20210048572
    Abstract: Provided is a light control film capable of gradually changing the in-plane transmittance and thereby adding an in-plane gradation between light and dark. A light control film 10 according to the present invention includes: a first electrode 22A and a second electrode 22B disposed facing each other; a light control material 14 disposed between the first electrode 22A and the second electrode 22B and changing the transmittance in accordance with the potential difference between the first electrode 22A and the second electrode 22B; and a potential gradient forming part for providing the gradient of the potential difference in the extension direction of the first electrode 22A and the second electrode 22B.
