Directing structure through chirality

Abstract:

Chirality - or the absence of mirror symmetry - is a fundamental physical property that permeates geometrical structures in nature, from the double-helical shape of DNA to the macroscopic anatomy of entire organisms. However, the specific mechanisms underpinning the propagation of chirality across such wide differences in length-scales often remain poorly understood. In this thesis, we explore the quantitative link between molecular and supramolecular chirality in liquid crystal phases of ...
