The liquid crystal phases: physics and technology

Sluckin, T.J. (2000) The liquid crystal phases: physics and technology Contemporary Physics, 41, (1), pp. 37-56. (doi:10.1080/001075100181268).

Record type: Article


Liquid crystals are interesting both for fundamental reasons and because of their application in display device technology. I give an overview of the liquid crystal phases. I then describe in more detail some of the basic physics of nematic liquid crystals, concentrating on those pieces of physics which underly display device technology. Finally I give a brief description of some of the most important liquid crystal applications.
