A novel fiber-oriented scattering polarizer is prepared by infiltrating liquid crystal into an aligned-fiber film (schematically shown in the figure), which is fabricated by using an optimized strategy of anisotropic electrospinning. The new-style polarizer has a high polarizing efficiency, is simple to fabricate and has uniform and controllable optical characteristics. It could be used in flat-panel displays, antiglare sunglasses, photography filters or optical instruments.
