Liquid crystals beyond displays, Chemistry, Physics, and Applications

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


This book covers a wide selection of modern nondisplay photonic applications of liquid crystals (LCs) concentrating both on the physics and chemistry and
on some specific applications. It is certainly an invaluable source for researchers and engineers who are working on such hot topics or for graduate students
who want to start their research career in these topics. The book includes 17 different chapters written by well-known researchers in their fields starting from LC lasers, semiconducting LCs, ferromagnetic and ferroelectric nanoparticles in LCs, nanotubes LCs system, nano- and micro-fibres functionalised by LCs, lightinduced phase transformations, light-induced switching and motors in LCs, meta-materials combined with LCs, switchable windows, nano-photonic applications of LCs and nonlinear optics of ferroelectric LCs.
