Liquid Crystal Electromechanical Elastomer: A Strong Future for Smectic A* Molecules


Electromechanical materials are very useful as actuators when small weight, and low to moderate force are needed to manipulate small objects. The Liquid Crystal Material Research center located in Boulder, Colorado in interested in developing a novel liquid crystal based electromechanical elastomer. De Vries liquid crystals organize into layers where the… (More)
