Liquid crystal polymers is a fast growing, interdisciplinary field combining features of both contributory disciplines to produce unique properties. The main chain liquid crystalline polymers (LCPs) interest scientists and engineers for their applications in high strength fibres and composites, while the side chain LCPs have been applied as functional materials in, for example, non-linear optical and information display fields. In addition, the crosslinked LCPs and liquid crystal gels have shown potential applications in stabilized cholesteric and chiral smectic displays. This book provides a view of this burgeoning field from two of its leading international scientists.
