Dynamic Imaging of Carbon Nanotube - Liquid Crystal Suspensions

Bjorkman, Raymond N.
2015

Liquid crystals (LCs) are materials that exhibit fluid-like properties, while maintaining a degree of long-range crystalline order. They exhibit a variety of useful electro-optical properties and have found wide use in liquid crystal displays, optical telecommunications, and soft actuators. The speed at which the material responds to an applied electric field (switching speed) is a critical dete... read more
