Design of an extremely high birefringence nematic liquid crystal based on a dinaphthyl-diacetylene mesogen

Author affiliations

Abstract

We designed dinaphthyl-diacetylene-based nematic liquid crystals with alkoxy tails (DNDA–OCm) and evaluated their birefringence (Δn). Actual measurements of pure target compounds showed that DNDA–OC2 had the highest value of 0.62 at 550 nm at Tc + 10 °C.
