Water-Based Liquid Crystals: Ordered Fluids with Unusual Properties and Significant Potential for Applications
Friday, October 13, 2017

The liquid crystals used in displays are oily fluids in which the molecules possess orientational order.  Another class of liquid crystals relies on the spontaneous formation of molecular assemblies when certain dyes and drugs are dissolved in water.  These aqueous systems are the subject of significant scientific research, due to the possibility of applications in biology and medicine.  This research reveals that water-based liquid crystals behave quite differently from their oily counterparts, thus creating the understanding necessary to develop new techniques and devices in an area where liquid crystals have had little impact.
