The Physics of Liquid Crystals

Pierre-Gilles de Gennes

The first edition of this book has been an acknowledged classic since its publication en 1974. Its success, and the great advances that have taken place in the ensuing years, have made this new edition, now available in paper back, both welcome and necessary.

Liquid crystals, like all other kinds of matter, are subject to thermal expansion. As the temperature rises, the average spacing between the aligned molecules of a nematic phase (see below) increases, thus causing the e-ray to be increasingly retarded with respect to the o-ray. If a suitable liquid crystal mixture is painted onto the surface of a patient's body, it can often reveal the sites

This is made of the same substance as mood rings. From the text on back of the sheet: "The liquid crystals on this sheet exhibit brilliant changes in color when exposed to slight differences in temperature between 77 F and 90 F. Called cholesteric liquid crystalsthey exhibit both the flow properties of a liquid and the optical properties of a crystal in that they scatter light selectively."

Over the 100 years since its discovery, liquid crystals have been the intriguing subject for both academia and industries. The textbook of de Gennes The Physics of Liquid Crystals published in 1974 is still the bible for many LC researchers, but new subjects unmentioned in the book have also risen for these years.
