Liquid crystals functionalizing for photonic, bio-photonic and multi physics devices
Author(s): V. Kochurad*
The knowledge on the manipulation of energy is of core importance for research, technological innovation and industry. The different materials and configurations are used to build the related devices which are monopurpose and mono physics dealing with a single type of energy. An alternative to bypass these problems is the usage of liquid crystals: Inanimate or living ones. In this work, we show our results on modeling and simulating three kinds of diode (thermal, bio-optical and thermal-optical), a sensor based on the thermal hall effect and a thermal-optical controller. It was found that diodes having an asymmetric molecular director and asymmetric physical tensors with rectification effect can be created by an escaped radial disclination confined in an capillary tube (dielectric, thermal conductivity). This asymmetry, studied by classical and geometrical models generates the thermal.. Read More»
