Researchers present the new form of matter at the 58th Biophysical Society Meeting in San Francisco Plop living, swimming bacteria into a novel water-based, nontoxic liquid crystal and a new physics takes over. The dynamic interaction of the bacteria with the liquid crystal creates a novel form of soft matter: living liquid crystal. The new type of active material, which holds promise for improving the early detection of diseases, was developed by a research collaboration based at...

Researchers Grow Liquid Crystal 'Flowers' That Can Be Used As Lenses
2013-12-22 17:45:14

University of Pennsylvania 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. In their earlier studies, the team produced patterns of “defects,” useful disruptions in the repeating patterns found in liquid crystals, in nanoscale grids and rings. The new study adds a more complex pattern out of an even simpler template: a...

Penn Researchers Add Another Tool In Their Directed Assembly Toolkit
2013-11-12 12:43:22

University of Pennsylvania An interdisciplinary team of University of Pennsylvania researchers has already developed a technique for controlling liquid crystals by means of physical templates and elastic energy, rather than the electromagnetic fields that manipulate them in televisions and computer monitors. They envision using this technique to direct the assembly of other materials, such as nanoparticles. Now, the Penn team has added another tool to its directed assembly toolkit,...

Scientists have unearthed a new dynamic process induced by strong electric fields in thin liquid crystal cells Liquid crystal displays are ubiquitous. Now, Polish physicists have demonstrated that the application of a very strong alternating electric field to thin liquid crystal cells leads to a new distinct dynamic effect in the response of the cells. The theory of spatio-temporal chaos explains this effect. It was elucidated by Wojciech Jeżewski and colleagues from the...
