Implications of Banana Shaped Liquid Crystal in Display Mode

Due to high carrier mobility, the liquid crystals have gained much importance in the field of light and these crystals are used in organic light emitting devices. The shape of classical thermotropic liquids is found to be disk or rod alike. It is considered that the modification in liquid crystals can be done easily because of the fact that the molecules are joined together sterically. There physical properties are complex due to the reason that their molecular structure is not conventional. Since molecules in liquid crystals are polar packed so they tend to show ferro or anti-ferroelectric properties. It is observed that the direction of banana-shaped molecules in liquid crystals is aligned within layers so some characteristics of ferro-electricity are found in these crystals. The current paper describes the implications of banana-shaped liquid crystals in display mode.
