Laser triggered phase transition in photothermal liquid crystals

Author affiliations

Abstract

Reversible high temperature phase transitions were easily induced under laser irradiation in pure thermotropic liquid crystals built around photothermal nickel-bis(dithiolene) cores. The strong photothermal activity of nickel-bis(dithiolene) liquid crystalline thin films allows reaching a temperature as high as 250 °C directly from room temperature in a few seconds with high spatial control.
