  • Condensed Matter Seminar: Microfluidic Pathways towards Topological Defect Templates

    A4

    Professor Anupam Sengupta, MIT

    Liquid crystals (LCs) are mesogenic phases of matter which combine liquid fluidity with crystalline solid properties.The material anisotropy allows us to explore LCs as complex functional materials for microfluidics. Harnessing the anisotropic coupling between the flow and the molecular ordering renders a novel perspective to the conventional concepts in microfluidics.

  • Condensed Matter Seminar: Design of Biotic-Abiotic Interfaces using Liquid Crystals

    A4

    Professor Nicholas Abbott, University of Wisconsin

    Many biological molecules form liquid crystalline phases.  The unique combination of long-range molecular ordering and mobility found in liquid crystals has been exploited by nature to create a range of functional and living systems.  We are pursuing studies that seek to create synthetic liquid crystalline materials that recapitulate biological design principles and can be used to couple biotic and abiotic systems in useful ways.
