EuroTech Chemistry and Chemical Engineering Series #8

The EuroTech Working Group on Chemistry and Chemical Engineering is continuing its online seminar series: In a bi-weekly rhythm, the group is offering a one-hour talk open to all. Join us on 9 March 2022 for the eighth talk:

Prof. Albert Schenning 
Laboratory of Stimuli-responsive Functional Materials and Devices 
Eindhoven University of Technology

Stimuli responsive materials based on liquid crystals

Polymers which respond to a stimulus by changing their properties are one of the focal points in materials science. The self-assembly of liquid crystals has proven to be a useful tool in the development of such soft materials. Liquid crystalline polymer materials are appealing since microscopic changes in the molecular order and orientation lead to programmed macroscopic changes in shape and optical properties. In my lecture, stimuli responsive materials will be discussed that can be applied as soft actuators, robots, color changing materials and sensors.
