Abstract

Liquid dielectrophoresis (L-DEP) is the phenomenon where dielectric liquids in non-uniform electric fields can be used to drive along the high electric field intensity. Nematic liquid crystals are interesting liquids for L-DEP studies, they are often designed to exhibit large anisotropic polarisabilities, which provides a high driving force for L-DEP.

All welcome.

This seminar is hosted by: Dr Christopher Castleton
