Liquid Crystal Research May Lead to Creation of New Materials That Can Be Actively Controlled

July 26,2022

Dec. 27, 2012 — Contributing geometric and topological analyses of micro-materials, University of Massachusetts Amherst mathematician Robert Kusner aided experimental physicists at the University of Colorado (UC) by successfully explaining the observed "beautiful and complex patterns revealed" in three-dimensional liquid crystal experiments. The work is expected to lead to creation of new materials that can be actively controlled.
