Anisotropic properties of liquid crystals

Liquid crystals are ordered fluids, formed by various types of constituents, molecules, as in displays, that we mix with nanoparticles but also nanoparticles in isotropic liquids. Our interest spans from the phase behaviour, the defect formation or alignment induced by unconventional surfaces or by strong confinemen to the field-induced reorientation,
