Active Nematics by Dr. Julia Yeomans, University of Oxford
Ivan Smalyukh gives a talk at the LC2CAM 08 conference about nematic colloids, how they are bound, methods of assembly, localized defects, and exotic assembly.
Daniel Schwartz gives a talk at the LC2CAM conference about his group's studies of surface anchoring, mesoscopic elasticity, and optical anisotropy of liquid crystals.
Robert Ramsey gives a talk at the LC2CAM conference about meadowlark optics liquid crystal capabilities, next generation nematic LC technology, and "swift liquid crystal" devices.
James Rego gives a talk at LC2CAM conference about reactions of chiral pyruvate esters and light to produce to chiral agents, reactivity of these molecules, and directions for best results.
