Liquid Crystals Through Experiments
- Mojca Čepič
- December 2014
DescriptionThis book is a hands-on guide to experiments with liquid crystals, with clear instructions given throughout. It contains a set of questions and tasks for students as well as further project suggestions. Included are a set of experiments that do not use liquid crystals, but materials with similar properties, to allow for the study of phenomena characteristic for liquid crystal with simpler means. Finally, the book also includes an example of a module developed and tested for non-specialist undergraduate students. Liquid Crystals Through Experiments will prove itself as an indispensable text for lecturers who want to bring the physics of 'everyday' into the classroom.
About EditorsMojca Čepič started her career as a high-school teacher of physics. She later went on to graduate in theoretical studies of soft matter physics, more precisely, by development of a phenomenological theoretical model describing phases in antiferroelectric liquid crystals at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia. Today, she is the lecturer of physics, physics education and science education within university programs for future teachers of physics, teachers of science and for primary-school teachers. She is still actively involved in theoretical soft matter physics, mainly in liquid crystals and has published more than 70 articles in this field.
