Speakers: Prof. Helen Gleeson

Professor Gleeson will giver her Inaugural Lecture, titled 'Looking through the Liquid Crystal Ball', on 7th October, followed by a drinks reception in University House. The Vice-Chancellor, Sir Professor Alan Langlands, will be introducing Professor Helen Gleeson.

In this talk I will describe some of the unique features of liquid crystals, explaining how the combination of order, fluidity and functionality is used in technology and by nature. I will then try to look into the future, through a liquid crystal ball! I will describe some of the new liquid crystal phases with nanostructures that offer completely new electro-optical phenomena. I will also speculate on some of the emerging non-display applications of liquid crystals. I hope to show you that understanding the physics of liquid crystals is both intellectually stimulating and could offer new practical solutions for the future.'
