A 4π phase modulator with an average gray-to-gray response time of ~ 400 μs is demonstrated based on sheared polymer network liquid crystal (SPNLC). This device exhibits a low scattering at 532 nm due to our new material set and shearing technique. We also discuss the application of SPNLCs for 3D display, such as lenticular lens.
