The anchoring and orientation of liquid crystal (LC) molecules are influenced by several parameters. This paper presents theoretical work that aims to explain how surface changes and potential due to corrosion, affect the LC orientation and anchoring. This work is done with a view of enabling the design and development of a LC based corrosion sensor. Copyright © 2010 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd.

A systematic study of the nitridation of SnO 2 nanowires grown by the vapor liquid solid mechanism Zervos, Matthew; Othonos, Andreas S. (2012)SnO 2 nanowires (NWs) with diameters of 50 nm and lengths ≥10 μm have been grown at 800 °C on 1.0 nm Au/Si(001) via the vapor liquid solid mechanism and the low pressure chemical vapor deposition. These exhibited clear ...
