Transmission and amplification of information and properties in nanostructured liquid crystals.
In recent years the design of chemical structures of liquid-crystalline materials has developed rapidly, and in many cases changed radically. Since Reinitzer's days, liquid crystals have either been classed as rodlike or disclike, with combinations of the two leading to phasmidic liquid crystals. The discovery that materials with bent molecular structures exhibited whole new families of mesophases inspired investigations into the liquid-crystal properties of materials with widely varying mole...Expand abstract
