New method inverts the self-assembly of liquid crystals 2

In liquid crystals, molecules automatically arrange themselves in an ordered fashion. Researchers have discovered a method that allows an anti-ordered state, which will enable novel material properties and potentially new technical applications, such as artificial muscles for soft robotics. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/04/190412150623.htm
