Notre Dame Team Develops Way to Measure and Engineer Properties of Liquid Crystal Systems

nwelding • Date: March 9, 2018

New work by the Whitmer group explores the role of “saddle-splay” elasticity in nematic liquid crystals, where global alignment of the crystal is simultaneously deformed in two directions (right) relative to its undeformed state (left).

New simulation protocols developed by a team of researchers at the University of Notre Dame and the University of Chicago enable accurate measurements of the elastic coefficients which control the behavior of liquid crystal systems.
