Liquid crystal technology goes under the spotlight ; In Brief [Hull Daily Mail (England)]
(Hull Daily Mail (England) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) HULL: The University of Hull is staging a number of special events next month marking its role at the forefront of research into liquid crystal technology.
Research into liquid crystals started at the campus in 1946 with the appointment of Brynmor Jones and George Gray. The latter went on to produce the first liquid crystal display units, paving the way for today's array of LCD gadgets, ranging from mobile phones to flat- screen TVs.
Taking place as part of two public open days at the Cottingham Road campus on Thursday, September 12, and Friday, September 13, Dr Mike Hird, of the Department of Chemistry, will be hosting morning and afternoon sessions looking at the nature of liquid crystals and how they work within technology.
The one-hour sessions start at 11am and 2pm on both days. Places do not have to be booked.
