Liquid crystal screens have been came upon within the Nineteen Sixties, and this day we proceed to benefit from the merits of that basic discovery and its translation right into a good selection of goods. Like liquid crystals, polymers are strange fabrics, and feature equally loved loads of learn consciousness as a result of their immense functions and makes use of and complicated primary houses. the mix of liquid crystal and polymer houses produces a extensive array of latest effects—spanning from densely crosslinked, inflexible polymer networks to weakly crosslinked elastomers—that should not easily manifestations of both local liquid crystals or polymers by myself.



Cross-Linked Liquid Crystalline Systems brings jointly liquid crystal and polymer structures and their adaptations. the sector, very like conventional liquid crystals, is considered one of an interdisciplinary nature with a extensive spectrum, from the very primary questions of nature to a myriad of useful makes use of. There looks no scarcity of bizarre houses and far-reaching purposes in densely crossed-linked liquid crystal platforms and liquid crystal elastomers. those structures offer a wealthy new street for either primary and utilized examine and proceed to fascinate scientists and engineers. particularly, this booklet covers:





  • Cross-linked networks made out of reactive mesogen materials

  • Manipulation of liquid crystalline by means of exterior constraints

  • Advances in lcd display technology

  • Physical and electromagnetic homes of elastomers and magnetic gels

  • Computer simulations and conception of liquid crystal polymeric networks and elastomers

  • Side-on nematic liquid-crystalline elastomers for synthetic muscle applications



Liquid crystal reveal know-how has pushed a lot of the elemental study in crosslinked liquid crystalline structures. The structures’ skill to implement 3-dimensional constitution within the molecular order and seize it created a few compelling program chances since it supplied beneficial keep an eye on of the molecular order. This booklet advances the certainty of easy technological know-how at the back of those structures, speeds up the various proposed functions to undefined, and hopes to encourage generations of scientists to imagine widely approximately those fascinating and invaluable fabrics.
