Liquid crystal substance that blends the structures and properties of the normally disparate liquid and crystalline solid states liquids can flow for example while solids cannot and crystalline solids possess special symmetry properties that liquids lack ordinary solids melt into ordinary. The book consists of three parts the first part on structure starts from the fundamental principles underlying the structure of liquid crystals their rich phase behaviour and the methods used to study them the second part on physical properties emphasizes the influence of anisotropy on all aspects of liquid crystals behaviour the third . The physics of liquid crystals p g de gennes j prost and robert peter palffy muhoray is a professor of chemical physics and associate director of the liquid crystal institute at kent state university their key feature is that the liquid crystal orientation and hence the optical properties can be controlled with applied fields. Structure and properties of liquid crystals discusses the theoretical concepts necessary to understand the liquid crystal phase from the perspective of an experimentalist all the necessary theory is there for a wide range of topics in the physics of liquid crystals line drawings are used throughout the text to help with the
