Description

The Boulder LC2CAM International Workshop will enable researchers working at the forefronts of materials science & optics to discuss the emerging uses of light for control of ordered soft materials and advances in the use of liquid crystals to control light. Workshop topics include:

Laser trapping and manipulation in liquid crystals
Tunable and frequency-selective negative-index media
Light-induced phase transitions
Nonlinear optics of liquid crystals
Light-controlled surface anchoring phenomena
Confocal, multiphoton fluorescence, and CARS microscopy of liquid crystals
Holographic polymer dispersed liquid crystals
Light-controlled liquid crystalline polymers and elastomers
Optics of colloidal and nanostructured systems
Sensors and wavefront control devices
