Welcome to Axel (left) and Yosuk (right)

Axel and Yosuke join our group for their bachelor project.

Axel will investigate the isotropic-nematic phase transition of liquid crystal oligomers and the impact of the concentration of chiral dopant on the ground-state color of cholesteric liquid crystal elastomers (CLCEs).

Yosuke will study the small-scale limit of cholesteric spherical reflectors (CSRs).

Welcome Tabea

Welcome to Tabea.

Tabea is a master student at the University of Stuttgart. She is in our group for an internship for 2.5 months. She will work on the fractionation of Chitin-based nanocrystal, which tend to form a chiral nematic phase.


Congratulations to Anjali!

Congratulations to Anjali, Jampani, and Jan on their new article published in Langmuir: "Realignment of liquid crystal shells driven by temperature-dependent surfactant solubility"

This is the study of nematic LC shells stabilized by temperature responsive surfactant. Study shows how one can change the alignment of LC just by varying the temperature. Click here for the full article.



Free access to recently published article!

Happy new year! Starting this year with free access to our recently published article “Influence of head group and chain length of surfactants used for stabilising liquid crystal shells”. It's free for first 50 readers. Enjoy reading.
