Final Comment

LIQUID CRYSTAL work originating at STL is now important in: displays, optical switching, real time holography and solar control.
Structured materials based on liquid crystals (mesoscopic phases) are now being used to improve performance in such areas as: OLED (organic light emitting diode) display and barrier dielectrics and phase and amplitude modulators in microscopy for aperture control and sub-wavelength tomography...
...quite apart from being fundamental to all living systems
