Paper Abstract

Several new fluoro diphenyl-diacetylene and tolane liquid crystals are synthesized and their physical properties evaluated. These liquid crystals exhibit a high resistivity, high birefringence, low viscosity and low threshold voltage. Owing to their relatively high melting temperatures and narrow nematic range, eutectic mixtures have to be considered. The eutectic mixtures consisting of these fluorinated compounds are particularly useful for active matrix, photoactivated light valve, and polymer-dispersed liquid crystal displays.
