Diluter effects on the phase transition temperatures, Debye relaxation frequency, and electro-optics of polymer- stabilized blue phase liquid crystal (BPLC) are investigated. Some diluters not only significantly decrease the BPLC response time but also slightly enhance the Kerr constant. For practical applications, optimal diluter concentration should be considered in order to balance the needs between response time and operation voltage.
