Call for
Join us at the 2018 Emerging Liquid Crystal Technologies XIII (ELCT-XIII) conference. This conference provides forum for academic and industrial scientists and engineers to present frontier and high-impact scientific and technological research on recent advances in materials, devices, and applications. Numerous emerging topics on liquid crystal science and technology have taken advantages of unique anisotropic properties of liquid crystal materials to significantly improve the performance of existing devices or create new device applications. The conference will feature keynote, invited, topical oral and poster sessions and an industrial exhibition. Attend ELCT-XIII for enlightened discussions and exchange ideas on frontier science and technologies on liquid crystal materials, devices, and applications.

Papers are solicited but not limited to the following areas:
  • photo-patterning and photoalignment
  • polarizers, optical retarders and other display components
  • wearable and e-paper displays
  • head-mounted and near-eye displays
  • 3D displays
  • light-field and holographic displays
  • holographically-formed materials, devices and applications
  • liquid crystal lenses and diffractive optical elements
  • smart windows
  • switchable diffractive waveplates
  • spatial light modulators
  • LC applications in the terahertz, infrared and microwave
  • lasing, waveguides, nonlinear optics, and plasmonic effects
  • new materials and effects
  • chiral phases and device applications
  • nano-dispersions and nanostructured materials
  • polymers and LC composites
  • lyotropic and biological self-assemblies
  • organic semiconductor and photovoltaic devices
  • energy harvesting, saving, and storage nanostructured systems and metamaterials
  • tweezing, imaging, manipulating or self-assembled nanoparticles
  • dyes, colloids, and nanoparticles-doped composites
  • sensors and actuators.
