We have experimentally studied the effect of chiraldopant on the electro‐optical performance of a polymer‐dispersed liquid crystal(PDLC) light valve. Adding a small amount of chiraldopant decreases the turn‐OFF time significantly but increases the drive voltage only slightly. A phenomenological theory is presented to explain the experimental results.
