Liquid crystals in a nematic phase, in which there is no spatial ordering of the molecules, for example, are used in LCD technology. One important feature of liquid crystals is the fact that an electrical current affects them. A particular sort of nematic liquid crystal, called twisted nematics (TN), is naturally twisted. Current developments in the field of thermotropic chiral-nematic liquid crystals as sensors are discussed. These one dimensional photonic materials are based on low molecular weight liquid crystals and chiral-nematic polymeric networks. For both low Cited by:

National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Scientific and Technical Information Program.]. The positron lifetime measurements in mixtures of variable relative concentrations of TM74A and TM74B chiral nematic liquid crystals indicate that the second-component lifetime r2 increases from k 11 psec to ± 22 pscc, whereas the third-component lifetime r3 increases from 4- 18 psec to psec, as one goes from a pure formu.

Positron annihilation lifetime technique was applied to study the electric field dependence of size, intensity and size distribution of free volumes in various liquid crystals negative nematic MBBA(N-(4-methoxybenzylidene)-4′-n-butylaniline), positive nematic 5CB (4-cyano-4′-n-pentylbiphenyl) and cholesteric mixture of MBBA and cholesteryl by: 1.

The light switching property of chiral (or cholesteric) liquid crystals (CLCs), circular Bragg reflection, occurs between wavelengths λ 1 = pn o and λ 2 = pn e where n o and n e are the ordinary.

Positron Lifetime Spectroscopy 2 The scheme of the positron lifetime measurement is shown in Fig 1. BaF 2 or plastic scintillators and photomultipliers with a short pulse rise-time are used to obtain a high time resolution.

The discriminators suppress noise and generate standard timing pulses by the constant-fraction discrimination principle. Chiral nematic liquid crystals—otherwise referred to as cholesteric liquid crystals (CLCs)—are self-organized helical superstructures that find practical application in, for example.

Cholesteric phases, also known as chiral nematics, are fascinating examples of liquid crystals. Liquid crystals are phases of matter characterized by a degree of sponta-neous breaking of the rotational and translational sym-metries that is higher than in the liquid and lower than in the crystal phase.

In the nematic phase, for example. Colloidal particles dispersed in liquid crystals can form new materials with tunable elastic and electro-optic properties [1]. In a host comprising a periodic Blue Phase chiral liquid crystal [2] for instance, the particles should template into colloidal crystals [3] with potential uses in photonics, metamaterials, and transformational optics [4].

In the entire history of liquid crystals, only four distinct nematic ground states have been found: the uniaxial, the biaxial, and, for chiral molecules, the helical nematic and blue phases.

Phase transformation (20x magnification, 3x speed) for an isotropic liquid to chiral nematic liquid crystal.

Although nucleation begins in a similar fashion to the regular nematic. Chiral Nematic: In chiral nematic liquid crystals we see a helical structure, where the director vector is rotated slightly in each subsequent layer of molecules – the distance along the axis between two molecules with parallel director vectors is called the pitch of the liquid crystal.

Blue phases are liquid crystal phases that appear in the temperature range between a chiral nematic phase and an isotropic liquid phase. Blue phases have a regular three-dimensional cubic structure of defects with lattice periods of several hundred nanometers, and thus they exhibit selective Bragg reflections in the wavelength range of visible light corresponding to the cubic lattice.
