Chapter 16: Polymer Modified Nanoparticle Laden Liquid Crystals
Published:03 Jan 2019
Recently, the stabilization and modification of liquid crystals via dispersed particles has attracted increased research attention. This method and the respective materials can be combined with methods of polymer modification, so as to achieve an amplified impact on stabilization and property tuning. Examples are provided for PDLCs as well as PSLCs, where effects on polymer morphology are discussed alongside those on materials performance.
