  • Models for molecules show unexpected physics

    Small spheres suspended in a liquid move enough like molecules that the physics for one can be used to mimic the physics of the other.  That’s why the discovery of some unusual physics in colloids -- particles dispersed in a solution such as milk, for example -- could be of interest to researchers w more

  • Green chemistry: Scientists develop new process for more eco-friendly liquid crystals

    Liquid crystals could soon be produced more efficiently and in a more environmentally friendly way. A new process has been developed by researchers at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) in Germany, Bangalore University in India and Cairo University in Egypt. Compared to conventional met more

  • Liquid crystals for fast switching devices

    An international team has investigated a newly synthesized liquid-crystalline material that promises applications in optoelectronics. Simple rod-shaped molecules with a single center of chirality self-assemble into helical structures at room temperature. Using soft X-ray resonant scattering at BESSY more

World's first directly light powered walking device

Scientists have developed a polymer film with liquid crystals, that can undulate under the influence of light. They clamped a strip of this material in a rectangular frame, and it goes for a walk all on its own when illuminated. This research, performed by scientists of Eindhoven University of T ... more
