Paper Abstract

Liquid crystals (LC) are well known as smart material that changes its properties under the influence of external influence. Usually they used to visualize the distribution of not uniform thermal, electrical, magnetic, acoustic fields or for chemical and radiation detection. In this paper a new unique application of LC for surface tension mapping of solid surfaces is described.
