[Sven T Lagerwall] -- "Ferroelectric and antiferroelectric liquid crystals, including also various polymer forms, are the hottest research topic today in liquid crystals. The field is at the very beginning of industrial.

Among all LC materials available up-to-date the ferroelectric (FLC) and antiferroelectric (AFLC) liquid crystals [12][13] [14] are recognized for their fast electro-optical response, hysteresis. In this section a historical overview will be presented of the development of phenomenological theoretical models of ferroelectric and antiferroelectric Cited by: 5. Ferroelectric and antiferroelectric liquid crystals phases exhibit a rich variety of phase transitions which have been studied extensively by experimentally and theoretically. In this article, an attempt has been made to present a analysis of the current understanding of the structural phase transitions among the ferroelectric and. Ferroelectricity is a characteristic of certain materials that have a spontaneous electric polarization that can be reversed by the application of an external electric field. All ferroelectrics are pyroelectric, with the additional property that their natural electrical polarization is term is used in analogy to ferromagnetism, in which a material exhibits a permanent magnetic ferroelectric: non ferroelectric.

Lagerwall, in Encyclopedia of Materials: Science and Technology, 8 The Origin of Spontaneous Polarization. Ferroelectric Liquid Crystal Display (FLCD) is a display technology based on the ferroelectric properties of chiral smectic liquid crystals as proposed in by Clark and Lagerwall.. The FLCD did not make many inroads as a direct view display device. Manufacturing of larger FLCDs was problematic making them unable to compete against direct view LCDs based on nematic liquid Display capabilities: EDID, CEA, DisplayID.
