A First Example of a Lyotropic Smectic C* Analog Phase: by Johanna. R Bruckner

By Johanna. R Bruckner

during this thesis Johanna Bruckner experiences the invention of the lyotropic counterpart of the thermotropic SmC* part, which has develop into recognized because the simply spontaneously polarized, ferroelectric fluid in nature. through polarizing optical microscopy, X-ray diffraction and electro-optic experiments she firmly establishes elements of the constitution of the radical lyotropic liquid crystalline part and elucidates its interesting homes, between them a mentioned polar electro-optic impact, analogous to the ferroelectric switching of its thermotropic counterpart. The helical floor country of the mesophase increases the elemental query of the way chiral interactions are "communicated" throughout layers of roughly disordered and achiral solvent molecules that are situated among adjoining bi-layers of the chiral amphiphile molecules. This thesis bridges an enormous hole among thermotropic and lyotropic liquid crystals and pioneers a brand new box of liquid crystal research.
