Liquid Crystal Materials and Their Uses

Liquid crystals are materials that exist in a state that is intermediate between a liquid state and a solid. Light is manipulated by particular orientations of them to produce a visual effect, as in liquid crystal displays that can be used in high-volume technological applications. Although liquid crystals have found many applications across different fields of chemistry, only those where they interact with light, especially coloured light, are of interest in this text.
