Abstract:
The anchoring of Liquid Crystals (LCs) on surfaces patterned with functionalised Self Assembled Monolayers (SAMs) has been investigated. A range of pattern geometries and length scales have been used to explore the effects of surface patterning on the alignment of n-cyanobiphenyl (nCBs) LCs in their Smectic and Nematic phases and at the Nematic to Isotropic phase transition.
