Summary

These volumes are a result of the personal research and graduate lectures given by the authors at the École Normale Supérieure de Lyon and the University of Paris VII, respectively. Featuring an easy-to-follow, accessible style, each volume describes important concepts and physical properties using classroom-friendly experiments, many of which the professors used in their own classes, and clear diagrams.

Although Smectic and Columnar Liquid Crystals: Concepts and Physical Properties Illustrated by Experiments can be used as an independent text, it is an ideal and complementary companion to Nematic and Cholesteric Liquid Crystals: Concepts and Physical Properties Illustrated by Experiments.

Featuring topics that seldom appear in current literature, these volumes represent an ideal introduction and a valuable source of reference for theoretical and experimental studies of advanced students and researchers in liquid crystals, condensed matter physics, and materials science.
