Summary: 
In this study, we evaluated the electro-optical characteristics and structural stability in curved state of dye-doped liquid crystal (LC) gel film for stretchable displays. As the results, maximum contrast ratio of 6.7:1 and suppression of LC flow were achieved by optimum of blend condition such as gelator and dye concentration.
