Paper Abstract

Cornerstone Research Group Inc. (CRG) will present a brief overview on our recent efforts in developing liquid crystal (LC) network polymers for various applications. These efforts cover different aspects of the LC network polymer material technology in optical, structural and other novel applications. Liquid crystal network polymers have demonstrated great potential in producing high-performance optical components and smart materials, such as actuators. We will discuss the potential applications of these materials as optical filters, reflectors for lightweight space-based mirrors, and structural resins to improve toughness. The potential to capitalize on the templating capability of these materials to produce novel all-polymer conducting composites will also be discussed. Various possibilities and directions for future research and applications of liquid crystal network polymers will also be presented.
