Liquid Crystals

January 9, 2013

Shu Yang, associate professor in MSE and CBE in the School of Engineering and Applied Science at Penn led a team of researchers who have found a new way to direct the assembly of liquid crystals by altering the geometry of the molecules on the bottommost layer and thereby producing changes in the patterns of defects on the topmost. These defects could be useful to nanomanufacturing. Read more here.
