June 24, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- A new study on Materials Research is now available. According to news reporting originating in Cambridge, United Kingdom, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "Diverse functionalities of liquid crystals (LCs) offer enormous opportunities for their potential use in advanced mobile and smart displays, as well as novel non-display applications."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from the University of Cambridge, "Here, we present snapshots of the research carried out on emerging applications of LCs ranging from electronics to holography and self-powered systems. In addition, we will show our recent results focused on the development of new LC applications, such as programmable transistors, a transparent and active-type two-dimensional optical array and self-powered display systems based on LCs, and will briefly discuss their novel concepts and basic operating principles."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Our research will give insights not only into comprehensively understanding technical and scientific applications of LCs, but also developing new discoveries of other LC-based devices."
