Discovery of new phase of liquid crystal heralds “new universe of materials” [Full subscriber]

More than 100 years after two physicists first proposed a new phase of liquid crystal, scientists at the University of Colorado Boulder (UoCB) have managed to produce it. This new “ferroelectric nematic” phase has proven highly responsive to electrical fields, and by improving the understanding of its unique behaviour, the researchers are hopeful it has the potential to lead new advances in material technology.…
