      Liquid crystals, which are obtained by melting a crystalline solid, are called thermotropic. Liquid crystalline behavior is also found in certain colloidal solutions, such as aqueous solutions of tobacco mosaic virus and certain polymers. This class of liquid crystals is called lyotropic. For lyotropic liquid crystals the important controllable. [Discovery of liquid crystals (LC)] Between and , people from different fields like chemistry, biology observed strange behavior in some materials when the temperature is approaching the melting point. W. Heintz, a German biochemist, reported in that stearin melted from a solid to a cloudy liquid at 52°C, changed at 58°C to an.

      LCD, of course, stands for liquid crystal display. That's right, crystals are used in the screens of many electronic devices. Although LED (light emitting diode) screens are now becoming more popular, until recently, LCD screens had become the standard model. . In , about compounds forming liquid crystalline phases were known; by , this number had increased to about 50 In portable devices like wristwatches, pocket caculators, measuring instruments, and laptop computers the liquid crystal display technology has gained total acceptance and is on the way to encompass the market of colour TV screens.

    1. Introduction uction to Liquid Crystals Historical background Liquid crystals are a unique state of matter, between solid (crystalline) and liquid (isotropic) phases some compounds form a distinct, different intermediate phase, sometimes referred to as the “fourth state of matter” or “mesophase”. These compounds display properties of both solid and liquid. Liquid crystals exhibit amazingly interesting properties that make them indispensable for several technological applications. The book Liquid Crystals - Recent Advancements in Fundamental and Device Technologies is aimed to focus on various aspects of research and development that liquid crystal mediums have come across in recent years.
