Liquid Crystals and Related Materials II
These proceedings comprise a selection of the peer-reviewed papers that were presented at the 2nd International Symposium on Liquid Crystals: Science and Technology.
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
The topics of the 102 papers cover: the physics of liquid crystals, the chemistry of liquid crystals, applications of liquid crystals and related materials. This work will provide guidance to physicists, chemists and materials scientists working in the field of liquid crystals.
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: The conference focuses on the physics, chemistry, and applications of a state of matter that possesses the fluid properties of liquids and the anisotropic properties of crystals. Over 100 papers selected from presentations and reviewed by peers discuss such topics as synthesizing and characterizing a novel liquid crystalline polymer bearing azobenzene, an infrared imaging system based on liquid-crystal thermo-optic effects, the microwave-assisted synthesis and mesomorphic properties of novel unsymmetric imidazolium as ionic liquid crystals, the electroluminescence of naturally oxidized polypyrrole, and improving the open circuit voltage of amorphous silicon solar cells by treating the p layer with hydrogen plasma.
