Liquid Crystal Phases - Thermotropic Liquid Crystals - Nematic Phase
... See also Biaxial nematic and Twisted nematic field effect One of the most common LC phases is the nematic ... The word nematic comes from the Greek νήμα (nema), which means "thread" ... This term originates from the thread-like topological defects observed in nematics, which are formally called 'disclinations' ...
Liquid Crystal Display - Active Matrix Technologies - Twisted Nematic (TN)
... See also twisted nematic field effect Twisted nematic displays contain liquid crystals that twist and untwist at varying degrees to allow light to pass through ... When no voltage is applied to a TN liquid crystal cell, polarized light passes through the 90-degrees twisted LC layer ... In proportion to the voltage applied, the liquid crystals untwist changing the polarization and blocking the light's path ...

Famous quotes containing the words liquid and/or twisted:

    Telephone poles were matchsticks, put there to be snapped off at a whim. Dogs trotting across the road were suddenly big trucks. Old ladies turned into moving—vans. Everything was too bright, but very funny and made for my delight. And about half a mile from my long liquid breakfast I turned carefully down a side street and parked, and sat beaming happily through the tannic fog for about an hour, remembering how witty we all had been, how handsome and talented ...

    Where the mind wanders till the heart corrodes.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
