The physics of liquid crystals J. Prost, P. G. de Gennes
Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA

Typical flat-panel displays are difficult to make for flexible-display development and innovation. I would like to give a surface overview on the physics behind the liquid crystals in LC displays. She holds a BA in physics from the College of Wooster, an MS in physics from Colorado State University, and a PhD in chemical physics from the Liquid Crystal Institute at Kent State University. Numerous companies are developing flexible displays on the basis of different electrooptic approaches, such as liquid-crystal, electrophoretic, and electrowetting technologies. Mark Lorch: Forty years ago Gray's work on liquid crystal displays (LCDs) was published, leading to a multibillion-dollar industry. Physics reports, 54:391–451, 1991. Shila Garg (center), professor of physics at The College of Wooster, is overseeing research by rising seniors Matt Schmitthenner (left) and Theresa Albon (right) on a new family of liquid crystals this summer. Surface effects and anchoring in liquid crystals. Molecules in a liquid crystal order into a pattern whose links and twists resemble a Hopf fibration, a geometric shape from topology with unusual properties. Some of the well known applications are liquid crystal displays, liquid crystal thermometers, optical imaging, and many more. Nematic Liquid Crystal Locking Menisci. Milan Svetec1,2,3 and Mitja Slavinec1,3. You can see them mainly in liquid crystals (LCs). On the uniqueness of stratification-induced structural tranformations in confined films. 1Department of Physics, University of Oxford, OX1 3PU, United Kingdom from Physics : Viewpoint: Topology with Liquid Crystals Viewpoint: Polariton Fluids for Optical Logic Focus: A New Direction for Thermoelectric Cooling. Soft condensed matter physics : Liquid crystals – classification, thermotropic ( nematic, cholesteric and smectic ) and lyotropic liquid crystals – mention of applications of liquid crystals – basic concepts of emulsions, gels & foams. I think that's why liquid crystals can be compared with women they both " are beautiful and mysterious" (de Gennes, in The physics of liquid crystals). Over the years, liquid crystal research has transformed into a truly interdisciplinary area.
