We report five ultra-low viscosity nematic liquid crystal mixtures with birefringence around 0.1, dielectric anisotropy in the range of 3 to 6, and clearing temperature about 80°C. A big advantage of these low viscosity mixtures is low activation energy, which significantly suppresses the rising rate of viscosity at low temperatures. Using our mixture M3 as(More)
We demonstrate two ultra-low viscosity liquid crystal mixtures to enable field-sequential-color wearable displays for low temperature operation, while keeping a wide color gamut. Our mixtures offer ~4X faster response time than a commercial material at 20°C and ~8X faster at −20°C. Other major attractive features include: (1) submillisecond response time at(More)
While it has been suggested that host microRNAs (miRNAs) may downregulate viral gene expression as an antiviral defense mechanism, such a mechanism has not been explored in the influenza virus for human flu studies. As it is difficult to conduct related experiments on humans, computational studies can provide some insight. Although many computational tools(More)
We investigated the flexoelectric effect of a fringe field switching liquid crystal (LC) cell and characterised the resultant image flicker with different LC mixtures at different frame rates. Incorporating with human eye perception of 10 observers, we found that LC mixtures with a dielectric anisotropy smaller than ~7 lead to unnoticeable image flicker at(More)
The hydroxy- and phenoxy-bridged dinuclear zirconium and hafnium complexes and of an amine-pyridine-bis(phenolate) ligand (H(2)L) were prepared from the reaction of Na(2)L and ZrCl(4) in the presence of 0.5 equiv of water in THF, while the reaction of H(2)L with NaH and then with ZrCl(4) in the freshly distilled THF gave an eight-coordinate bis(homoleptic)(More)
