Latest Liquid crystal Stories
More than a quantum step forward toward the next generation of displays DARMSTADT, Germany, May 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- -- Keynote speech by Michael Heckmeier: Synergies are
Paraffin wax and an LCD television have a lot more in common than you might think, according to a new study.
A team of material scientists, chemical engineers and physicists from the University of Pennsylvania has made another advance in their effort to use liquid crystals as a medium for assembling structures.
Heating a sheet of plastic may not bring it to life – but it sure looks like it does in new experiments at Rice University.
Displays for smartphones or tablet-PCs should be highly ruggedized at little overall weight. For curved displays, that might play a role in advertising or the automotive sector, a certain flexibility of the display materials is mandatory.
Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences An innovative measurement method was used at the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw for estimating power generated by motors of single molecule in size, comprising a few dozens of atoms only. The findings of the study are of crucial importance for construction of future nanometer machines – and they do not instil optimism. Nanomachines are devices of the future. Composed of a...
Light traveling in a vacuum is the Universe’s ultimate speed demon, racing along at approximately 300,000 kilometers per second. Now scientists have found an effective new way to put a speed bump in light’s path.
A fried breakfast food popular in Spain provided the inspiration for the development of doughnut-shaped droplets that may provide scientists with a new approach for studying fundamental issues in physics, mathematics and materials.
Liquid crystal displays are ubiquitous.
By showing that tiny particles injected into a liquid crystal medium adhere to existing mathematical theorems, physicists at the University of Colorado Boulder have opened the door for the creation of a host of new materials with properties that do not exist in nature.
