Featured Liquid Crystal Picture Art of the Month
The micrograph shows the texture of the SmI phase observed during cooling for hockey stick-shape pure compound at 85°C. The image was taken with a polarizing optical microscope (Olympus) with crossed polarizers and equipped with the Linkam TMSH 600 hot stage and the Linkam TMS 93 temperature controller.
This month's image is striking, because beautiful and vivid color discrimination is observed for birefringent colors maybe for different tilt directions.
