Chemistry in the pocket: Liquid Crystals Displays, e.g. in mobiles

self-made liquid crystal

We nearly all use them every day: liquid crystals – better-known as LCDs (liquid crystal displays) are part of mobile phones, pocket calculators and flatscreen devices. The trainee chemistry lab assistants at the TU Berlin, led by Andreas Eckert, demonstrate at several experiment stations how to build LCDs yourself.
