Reverse-mode polymer stabilized cholesteric texture (PSCT) cells with various chiral dopant and monomer concentrations were fabricated. Experimental results indicate that the chiral dopant concentration and the monomer concentration significantly influence the threshold voltage and hysteresis of the cells. The chiral dopant and monomer deform the hysteresis loop. Increasing the monomer concentration reduces the width of the hysteresis loop of the reverse-mode PSCT cell.
