Raman Spectroscopy for the Study of Nematic Liquid Crystals

  • Bernard J. Bulkin
Part of the Progress in Analytical Chemistry book series (PAC, volume 176)


Liquid crystals, primarily as a consequence of their potential electro-optic applications, have attracted considerable scientific interest in the past decade. This interest has extended to a large number of theoretical studies of the structure and properties of liquid crystals, as well as to a variety of spectroscopic techniques which nicely complement the theoretical work.
