Liquid Crystal Paper ImageOur research paper on liquid crystalline carbon dot dispersions was published online in the journal "Liquid Crystals". The work entitled"Chemically and thermally stable, emissive carbon dots as viable alternatives to semiconductor quantum dots for emissive nematic liquid crystal-nanoparticle mixtures with lower threshold voltage" sheds light onto a new class of luminescent nanoparticles, which could replace widely used but toxic semiconductor particles. It therefore continues our previous studies on LC nanocomposites and is a big step towards wide applicability.

Thanks to Torsten Hegmann and all coauthors for this fruitful collaboration!
