"Ferroelectricity Liquid Crystals: Principles, Properties and Applications" discusses the ferroelectric properties of optically active ordered fluids. The book is composed of self-contained chapters that deal with the broad aspects of this subject, from theoretical insights to commercial applications. this is the first textbook devoted solely to the rapidly expanding subject of ferroelectric liquid crystals, a unique class of substances that combine the electric polarization and anisotropy of ferroelectric crystals with the hydrodynamic properties of liquids. Ferroelectric liquid crystals represent a new generation of materials for displays, optical memories and optical computers, and may ultimately revolutionize flat panel display technology.
