Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This book is an essential text for those who want to learn about the chemistry, physics and applications of LCFs after the retirement from the academia of some of its contributors. … the book is a very relevant piece of scientific literature which has been published as a legacy for the next generation of scientists.” (Antoni Sánchez-Ferrer, Liquid Crystals Today, Vol. 23 (2), 2014)
