Liquid Crystals
Organic compounds that are capable of responding to small amounts of radiant energy and undergo a phase transition with selective reflection of light. Specific colors are obtained depending on the wavelength of light which is determined by the organic crystal array “pitch length.” Pitch lengths will vary considerably depending on temperature and the reflected light will also therefore depend on temperature. Application areas range from thermally activated displays to sensors and detection devices to cosmetics.
