Paper Abstract

Absorption spectrum, optical anisotropy, and photostability of liquid crystalline compounds are reviewed in connection with their molecular structures, providing explanation of superior optical properties of advanced materials. A novel class of substances is introduced to exhibit both high birefringence and good photostability. These features are indispensable to liquid crystalline materials for uses in modern displays.
