M5: From cat skin to submarines – soft materials that are a bit of a stretch / Professor Helen F Gleeson, Leeds University
Liquid crystals are a type of soft matter best known for their use in liquid crystal displays (LCDs) and much of the research in the area over the past 30 years or so has been focused on achieving what was once science fiction – TVs that hang on the wall and mobile telephones that communicate both visually and audially. However, LCD technology is now mature and for some time now new, exciting properties of liquid crystals that might lead to rather futuristic applications have been emerging. This talk shows how some of the unique properties of liquid crystals can be used for other applications, including electrically switchable focus contact lenses.
We will offer a varied programme of workshops, shows and presentations between 1.30pm pm and 8pm each evening Monday- Friday. For more details and a full e-programme please go to https://www.talkphysics.org/groups/talking-physics/forum/topic/welsh-physics-teachers-conference-brecon-2021/
